3. course dates, subject of performance

3.1 TRAUMA ACADEMY organizes and holds courses in the following format and objectives:

The target group is surgeons who wish to expand and extend their knowledge as part of their specialization. The courses consist of exercises on pre-fractured human specimens as well as technical lectures, innovative planning phases, and discussions. The courses start with a scientific introduction to the subject, followed by planning of the respective case (pre-fractured human preparation). This planning is done using radiographs, CT scans as well as 3D models of the fractures. After that, the treatment of the case with realistic fractures takes place. Each treatment ends with a discussion of the respective cases, for this, the surgeons have 3D X-ray images at their disposal.

The learning objectives of the course are to improve the planning and diagnosis of fractures, the treatment of the fracture with the implants/products provided, the avoidance of errors and complications, and the use of modern X-ray diagnostics such as 3D fluoroscopy. The focus is on gaining knowledge and experience to be able to treat similar cases on real patients with higher safety. The knowledge imparted is free of any advertising or benefit to individual contractual partners.

3.2 The principles of TRAUMA ACADEMY (independence, innovation, standardization, certification) serve to ensure quality and the applicable compliance standards. The multi-vendor principle serves as a basis for the implementation of a course, i.e. at least three competing contractual partners of the medtech industry should actively participate in the course (booked workplaces). However, the contractual partners have no influence on the course program, the course content nor the selection of the instructors.

3.3 Companies that are active in the medtech industry, as contractual partners of TRAUMA ACADEMY, provide the respective required products for the booked workplace (workstations) for the implementation of these courses.

3.4 Course dates: TRAUMA ACADEMY publishes the planned course dates for the coming/the current calendar year as early as possible. This enables the contractual partners to plan and book the courses in good time. However, TRAUMA ACADEMY reserves the right to make changes here for important reasons and to communicate these in good time. The current courses of the TRAUMA ACADEMY can be found at: www.trauma-academy.com.

3.5 Course participants of the TRAUMA ACADEMY courses in Germany: For the course participation the terms and conditions of the contract partner bikmed https://www.bikmed.de/service/agb.html apply.
The reason for this is the course booking of the participant via the course portal of bikmed.


3.6 Course participants of TRAUMA ACADEMY courses in Europe as well as worldwide: For course participation, the GTC of the respective contractual partner through which registration for the course is possible to apply. The GTC for course participants are published on the respective registration portals.



4 Booking, Cancellation of Course Participation

4.1 The contractual partner is free to decide which courses to book participation in. Support by the contractual partner shall be provided in accordance with the criteria of an unrestricted educational grant ("unrestricted educational grants").

4.2 TRAUMA ACADEMY reserves the right to adjust and change the number of booked workplaces per contractual partner based on the 4 above-mentioned principles. This serves the sole purpose of ensuring the quality of the courses as well as the imparting of learning objectives.



5 Termination for cause

5.1 TRAUMA ACADEMY reserves the right to cancel or postpone a course date for the following important reasons:

  Force majeure: Cases of force majeure and other events over which TRAUMA ACADEMY has no control, for which TRAUMA ACADEMY is not at fault and which make it considerably more difficult or impossible for TRAUMA ACADEMY to perform, do not lead to consequences of default or liability due to impossibility. These include the following examples, which are not exhaustive: official measures and orders (whether valid or invalid), fire, floods, storms, explosions, riots, natural disasters, war, sabotage, and pandemics. The parties agree that the inability to obtain materials, components, or services are not Force Majeure events. If events defined above are only of a temporary nature, they shall only lead to a corresponding postponement of obligations, but only for the duration of the hindrance plus a reasonable start-up period.

 

TRAUMA ACADEMY shall not be responsible for the aforementioned circumstances even if they occur during an already existing delay. TRAUMA ACADEMY will inform the client immediately of the beginning and end as well as the nature of the hindrance.


 
 

  • Number of participants: In close consultation with the contractual partner bikmed, who is responsible for the registration of the participants, the general terms and conditions of bikmed apply here: bikmed GmbH is entitled to withdraw from the contract if a course cannot be carried out due to circumstances for which it is not responsible or if the number of participants does not reach the minimum number required by the teaching method. In this case, any participation fees already paid will be refunded in full. Any further claims are excluded.


  • Multi-vendor principle: The aim of the TRAUMA ACACEMY is to create an optimal and highly compliant framework for the participants so that they can develop and expand their knowledge. For this purpose, a diversity of technological support is valuable and necessary. If there are less than 3 industry contractors on a course date, this will be a reason for course cancellation.

These are bodies or parts of bodies, organs or parts of organs of a deceased human being, a deceased fetus, parts of such a fetus, or severed or removed parts of bodies, organs or parts of organs and tissues of a living human being, which are not subject to direct therapeutic use, but rather are prepared. They require cooling and/or special storage for preservation.

He shall ensure that this respect is also owed in the case of intended handling by third parties. The contractual partner is particularly informed that disrespectful handling may have consequences under criminal law (in Germany, for example, reference is made to § 190 of the German Criminal Code "Störung der Totenruhe").

TRAUMA ACADEMY shall be liable beyond warranty claims for claims for damages - in particular from tort, organizational fault, fault in the conclusion of the contract or any other fault-dependent claims from breaches of duty - only insofar as TRAUMA ACADEMY or its vicarious agents are guilty of intent or gross negligence or the damage is based on a breach of material contractual duties or claims under §§ 1, 4 of the Product Liability Act. The above exclusion of liability for cases of simple negligence shall not apply in the case of damage resulting from injury to life, limb, or health; or in the case of the assumption of a guarantee of quality or the fraudulent concealment of a defect within the meaning of § 444 BGB.
