Acquire New Surgical Skills at an Arthroscopy Course Provided by FORE

Arthroscopy Course

Attending an arthroscopy course provided by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) is an ideal way to gain new skills that you can apply to your clinical practice. You’ll join thousands of orthopaedic surgeons, physical therapists, nurses, rehabilitation specialists, orthopaedic surgery fellows, and other healthcare professionals who have attended FORE’s conferences since 2006, acquiring valuable insight from some of today’s top names in arthroscopic surgery.

Each arthroscopy course designed by FORE features a unique and highly engaging combination of session types, including Q&As, interactive discussion panels, live presentations, case studies, and demonstrations. You can also choose a course that features a hands-on component, such as bioskills labs, so that you can gain additional experience with emerging techniques and technologies.

Reasons to Attend a FORE Conference

By the end of our arthroscopy course, you’ll be better equipped to:

  • Develop and implement evidence-based strategies for the arthroscopic treatment of shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and ankle injuries
  • Determine which patients are good candidates for arthroscopic surgery and which patients would be better served by non-surgical therapies
  • Implement the latest strategies for improving patient outcomes while limiting complications
  • Provide comprehensive recommendations for postoperative rehabilitation

Upcoming Arthroscopy Conferences

FORE holds conferences throughout the year that explore arthroscopy topics through the lens of different sub-specialties, enabling practitioners to learn about advances in a way that relates to their day-to-day practice.

Our conference schedule provides an up-to-date list of the arthroscopy courses we currently have planned. You can also register for our mailing list to receive updates on new CME opportunities.


Traumatic injuries often present orthopaedic surgeons with some of their most challenging cases. For this reason, FORE offers several conferences each year dedicated to trauma care:

  • Orthopaedic Trauma & Fracture Care: Pushing the Envelope (San Diego, California)
  • Atlanta Trauma Symposium (Atlanta, Georgia)
  • Current Solutions in Orthopaedic Trauma (Tampa, Florida)

At these conferences, practitioners can learn new techniques for diagnosing and treating fractures and other musculoskeletal injuries, as well as explore relevant topics such as post-injury rehabilitation practices.


Arthroscopic spine surgery is a growing and constantly evolving field. Spine surgeons and neurosurgeons can stay apprised of the latest developments in arthroscopic spine surgery by attending FORE’s spine surgery conferences:

  • Selby Spine Conference (Park City, Utah)
  • Castellvi Spine Symposium (Key Largo, Florida)

These arthroscopy courses educate attendees on relevant techniques, technologies, and decision-making strategies, including indications for recommending minimally invasive versus open procedures.

Upper Extremity

Surgeons who specialize in treating the shoulder, elbow, wrist, or hand will find value in attending FORE’s upper extremity conferences:

  • Tampa Shoulder Course: Arthroplasty & Sports (Tampa, Florida)
  • Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery (Tampa, Florida)

These courses feature presentations and group discussions on a variety of arthroscopy topics, as well as bioskills labs that enable participants to gain useful experience with new arthroscopic techniques.

Lower Extremity

FORE’s Current Solutions in Foot & Ankle Surgery (Tampa, Florida) conference discusses the arthroscopic treatment of many common and complex foot and ankle conditions. Past years have included presentations on fractures, osteoarthritis, and soft tissue injuries.


Attendance at a FORE conference can be applied toward your CME requirements. Our conferences are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), and you may claim credits commensurate with your participation.
