North American AO ASIF
2001 Nursing Continuing Education
Course Schedule


The Association for the Study of Internal Fixation (AO ASIF) was initially conceived by Maurice E. Müller and founded in 1958 by Martin Allgöwer, Maurice E. Müller, Robert Schneider, and Hans Willenegger. The aim of the founders was to study the biomechanical prerequisites and pitfalls of internal fixation. In view of early work by pioneers like the brothers Lambotte, as well as Robert Danis, anatomic reduction, stable fixation, atraumatic surgical technique and early mobilization seemed to be the most reasonable working hypothesis.

From the beginning, the founding members recognized the importance of teaching and training for operating room personnel. This was the start of an ever-increasing worldwide teaching activity that continues today.
