An Accredited Hand Course for Medical Professionals Continuing Their Education

Hand Course

The annual hand course provided by FORE, the Foundation for Orthopedic Research and Education, is designed to provide current clinical information for medical professionals who practice hand surgery and/or rehabilitation. This year, the conference – Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery – will be hosted in Tampa, Florida, from November 4 – November 5, 2016. A carefully planned schedule of lectures, interactive discussions, case studies, and hands-on cadaveric lab sessions, will give participants unique insight into today’s most effective techniques for treating hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder injuries. Specialized areas of focus include caring for pediatric patients and how hand surgeons can apply their knowledge to shoulder surgery.

FORE’s Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery course is open to hand surgeons, plastic surgeons, and orthopedic surgeons, as well as:

  • Physician assistants and surgical assistants
  • Fellows and residents
  • Nurses and nurse practitioners
  • Physical therapists
  • Other healthcare professionals whose scope of practice includes hand and upper extremity surgery

The conference’s faculty comprises some of the industry’s leading experts, including hand and wrist surgeons, professors of orthopedic surgery, and occupational therapists. Throughout the duration of the hand course, attendees will have ample opportunities to discuss surgical techniques and technologies with the speakers, gaining unique insight that they can apply to their own practice.

Not only do we make it possible for participants to have one-on-one and small-group discussions with recognized thought leaders, but also to practice what they learn under the guidance of the course’s faculty. Our hands-on lab component sets our hand course apart from others, allowing principles to come to life in a memorable – and practical – manner.
