During the training course, the evaluation will be based on the reports of the training supervisor, active participation in the course and on the assessment of knowledge organised by a jury composed of the instructors of the speciality. Further to the application of the Royal Decree of 16 March, 1999, at the end of the first two years of training, the candidate will receive an attestation proving that he has successfully accomplished a specific university training course. At the end of the course, among other tasks, the candidate will have to present an original piece of work in the domain concerned in the form of a thesis or a publication with sufficient distribution.
Upon fulfilment of the above-described training requirements, the teaching committee will award the academic title in Orthopaedic Surgery.
This title does not replace official recognition by the ministerial validation committee. It attests the successful completion of an academic and scientific study programme in the context of a specialised training programme leading to this validation.
