The International Congress for Joint Reconstruction (ICJR) and the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) are launching an exciting partnership that builds on their respective strengths in providing educational opportunities across the orthopaedic sub-specialties.
ICJR will develop a FORE educational gateway on ICJR’s website, ICJR.net, to expand the site’s content beyond the hip, knee, and shoulder into additional areas of orthopaedic surgery. Beginning this month, ICJR will record presentations at FORE’s meetings and then posts them in the FORE gateway as an educational benefit for ICJR members.
In addition, ICJR and FORE will jointly sponsor the 2016 Current Solutions in Foot and Ankle Surgery meeting, to be held January 21-23 in Tampa, Florida.
“ICJR is known as a leading provider of education focused on the hip, knee, and shoulder through our live meetings, live surgery broadcasts, webinars, websites, and mobile app,” said W. Norman Scott, MD, FACS, president of ICJR.
“By leveraging FORE’s exceptional strength in other areas of orthopaedics such as the spine, trauma, sports medicine, and the hand and wrist, ICJR will be able to expand the breadth of high-quality educational content we provide exclusively for our members.”
ICJR will cover FORE meetings on these topics in 2015 and 2016 and post the presentations not only on on ICJR.net, but also on ICJR Mobile, ICJR’s app for tablets and smartphones.
“FORE has a long tradition of supporting research and education on cutting-edge surgical techniques and medical devices,” said Derek Pupello, CEO of FORE. “The opening of our new facility – the Florida InnoVation and Education (FIVE) Labs – has given us the opportunity to expand the CME meetings and bioskills labs we offer in the orthopaedic subspecialties,”
“We are pleased to now partner with ICJR to bring the outstanding presentations from the stellar faculty at these meetings to the global orthopaedic community through ICJR’s website and mobile app.”
The International Congress for Joint Reconstruction was established in 2007 by a group of leading orthopaedic surgeons who were committed to creating the next generation of education and community for physicians involved with joint reconstruction.
ICJR is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to:
- Provide high-quality, contemporary orthopedic education
- Create a global orthopedic community
- Support orthopedics and related healthcare issues through philanthropic endeavors

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education was established in 1999 to provide patients with world-class orthopaedic care through research and education. FORE’s efforts to aid in the quest for orthopaedic excellence are accomplished by focusing on clinical and biomechanical research, surgical training, and continuing medical education. These areas are integral for improving the diagnosis, treatment, and care of all patients with musculoskeletal disorders.
