Hey - I'm on research now and want to take one of the trauma courses. Does anyone out there know any significant differences between the AO Basic and the OTA resident course? If I had to pick one?
I've already done the OTA powerpoints, and my program is trauma-heavy enough that I've done most basic cases as at least a first assist, with a few exceptions (little pelvic/tab trauma, only a handful of calcs, plateaus and elbows). I kinda want to go straight to the AO Advanced, but I don't think they'll let me.
Any and all advice appreciated.
