About MedFORT

MedFORT is the Federation of Orthopaedics and Traumatology for the Mediterranean countries that were established in Cyprus in 2011.

The idea of MedFORT was born during the 1st Mediterranean Trauma Conference which was held in Cyprus in 2011.

This conference was attended by 11 Mediterranean countries as Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Italy, Malta, Slovenia, Slovakia, Serbia, and Coatia.

During the conference it was decided to form a federation in orthopaedics and traumatology of the Mediterranean countries.  It was also decided that the headquarters of the federation will be based in Cyprus. The Mediterranean Trauma Conference is organized by MedFORT every two years from a different Mediterranean country each time.

During the 1st Mediterranean Trauma Conference it was voted that the 2nd Mediterranean Trauma Conference to be held in Allexandria, Egypt last year, but due to the situation in that country at that time, this was cancelled.

The decision was then taken that the 2nd Mediterranean Trauma Conference was held in Tel Aviv, Israel were the first General Assembly of MedFORT which took place.

The 2nd Mediterranean Trauma Conference was held in Israel in conjuction with the 34th Annual Meeting of Israel Orthopaedic Association (IOA) in Tel Aviv and will also include a SICOT symposium and AO International Symposium and will be in cooperation with EFORT.

We hope that we will give the opportunity for colleagues from Mediterranean countries to exchange their ideas and strengthen their relations and friendship.
