SICOT, International Society of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology(Société Internationale de Chirurgie Orthopédique et de Traumatologie) is an international non-profit association, incorporated under Belgian law with the aim to promote the advancement of the science and art of orthopedics and traumatology at an international level in particular for the improvement of patient care, and to foster and develop teaching, research and education. In year 2014 SICOT celebrated its 85th anniversary.

The current gathering of surgeons from 110 member nations and others,as each previous year,is a highly organized scientific, clinical and social event. Pleasure, expressed while meeting friends is excellent characteristic of the fruitful connections between the SICOT members.

SICOT is setting world standards of surgical competence – knowledge plus clinical skills – by offering an annual Diploma Examination comparable to those of exemplary institutions in highly developed countries. The two highest scoring graduates of this examination are awarded a travelling fellowship from the German Section of SICOT which provides a fully funded tour of the German center of excellence. The SICOT Journal, International Orthopedics, has shown steady gains of the Philadelphia-based publication reference rating. SICOT’s Training Manual is there to guide trainees along a map of the goal of full training. The SICOT page and group on Facebook and the e-Newsletter are used widely for continuous communication among members and interested non-members. It shares words, announcements and communications of its members. The SICOT Fellowships offers unique opportunities for education and exchange. The SICOT Foundation works to provide funds for travel to congresses and to work with masters of surgery in notable teaching centers. Young Surgeons Seminars ensure forums for study from invited experts; one more advantage thereof is that they give young surgeons an opportunity to represent their own researchers to their colleagues.

An increasingly successful initiative has been the creation of orthopaedic Education Centers. They provide an opportunity for education, research and manual skills training. They are open to community surgeons, nurses and physiotherapists. In fact, they can bring a whole orthopaedic community together.
