The Trainer of the Year is awarded annually to an Orthopaedic Consultant selected by the trainees in special recognition of their significant contribution to orthopaedic training. Started in 2017, previous winners have included Mr Michael O’Sullivan and Mr Keith Synnott.
It then comes as no surprise to Orthopaedic trainees and indeed his Consultant colleagues that this year’s Trainer of the Year award goes to Mr Peter Keogh. Mr Keogh qualified from Trinity College Dublin in 1979, and commenced practice as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in 1994, with appointments to Tullamore Hospital initially, and later Cappagh National Orthopaedic Hospital and Connolly Hospital from 1997.
