Arthroplasty Education Events for Orthopedic Surgeons

Arthroplasty Education

Arthroplasty education can help orthopedic surgeons become more adept at performing minimally invasive hip, knee, shoulder and ankle surgery. The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) – one of the nation’s premier providers of orthopedic CME – is proud to offer expert-led courses, such as Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery, Current Solutions in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery and the Annual David A. McQueen Memorial Perspectives in Total Joint Arthroplasty Conference, all of which highlight the latest techniques in joint surgery and arthroplasty.

What Sets FORE’s Conferences Apart?

Taking a unique approach to arthroplasty education, the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education emphasizes:

  • Small class sizes
  • The selection of esteemed thought leaders as conference faculty
  • Extensive discussion and communication

At FORE’s arthroplasty education conferences, surgeons can learn how to more efficiently evaluate surgical candidates, select the most appropriate prosthetic devices for surgery, implement newer techniques for greater surgical precision and implement strategies for postoperative rehabilitation. Participants can also learn about surgical alternatives and how to most effectively implement these treatments.

Additionally, at many conference events, classroom-based education is supplemented with arthroscopy workshops and hands-on bioskills labs, enabling participants to put principles into practice. As a result, it’s even easier for clinicians to apply what they learn at FORE’s CME events to their own orthopedic practices. Non-surgical professionals (e.g., nurses and physical therapists) are also welcome to attend these conferences to learn strategies for their own approach to patient care.

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education

While there are many organizations offering continuing medical education, FORE stands out in several key ways. For starters, we focus exclusively on planning orthopedic conferences, unlike providers that divide their time between serving a variety of medical fields. We believe that this high level of specialization enables us to create educational experiences that are especially useful to the orthopedic professionals in attendance.

What’s more, our schedule includes conferences for most major orthopedic specialties, ranging from trauma to upper extremity, foot and ankle and spine care, as well as sports medicine and orthopedic research. This diversity of options ensures you can find courses that closely fit your interests so that they will truly benefit you in your personal practice. We hold many of these events at our FIVE Labs facility in Tampa, Florida, which features an auditorium with 150 tiered, classroom-style seats and a state-of-the-art bioskills lab with over 3,600 square feet of lab space and up to 30 fully equipped surgical stations.

In addition to Tampa, our calendar of events also includes conferences in many other destinations across the country, such as:

  • New York, NY
  • Chicago, IL
  • Detroit, MI
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Key West, FL
  • Clearwater, FL
  • Park City, UT
  • Snowbird, UT
  • La Jolla, CA
