Shoulder Club International (SCI) is focused on education in shoulder surgery and sports medicine, and organizes educational courses with scientific collaboration together with the European School for Training in Orthopaedics (ESTRO). The high quality of courses is recognized via accreditation from the European Orthopaedics and Traumatology Education Platform of the European Federation of National Associations of Orthopaedics and Traumatology (EFORT). 

The 3rd SCI Cadaver and Simulation Course was held in Ankara, Turkey, and included sessions on VirtaMed's ArthroS™ Shoulder. Over 50 participants had the opportunity to train on the simulator alongside a busy scientific program under the banner of an ancient chinese proverb,

"Tell me, I forget. Show me, I remember. Involve me, I understand"

Dr. Gazi Huri, MD, Assoc. Prof, Organizer, said, "We were pleased to be able to include VirtaMed's simulators into the course program as they gave another opportunity to offer practical training. Shoulder Club International is proud to offer the leading surgical simulators as part of our high-quality courses."

VirtaMed was able to share some experiences with orthopedic simulators, giving participants an insight into how others have successfully integrated simulation into their curricula. "It was an honor for me to attend this event and hear from this group of shoulder experts including Dr. Huri," said Beat Rechsteiner, Senior Director International Business at VirtaMed. He continued, "We firmly believe that simulation can be a meaningful addition to a course with a great scientific program such as this."

Bertaş A.Ş became VirtaMed's sales partner in Turkey in 2017, and the partnership is invaluable when supporting courses such as Shoulder Club International. Members of Bertaş's team attended the event and introduced participants to the ArthroS™ Shoulder.
