An Accredited Hand Course for Medical Professionals Continuing Their Education

Hand Course

Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery, the annual hand course provided by FORE, the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education, is designed to provide current clinical information for orthopaedic surgeons and other medical professionals who practice hand surgery and/or rehabilitation.

A carefully planned schedule of lectures, interactive discussions, case studies, and hands-on bioskills lab sessions give participants unique insight into today’s most effective techniques for treating hand, wrist, and elbow injuries.

Attending FORE’s Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery course is beneficial for orthopaedic and plastic 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 field’s leading experts, including hand and wrist surgeons, professors of orthopedic surgery, and occupational therapists. Throughout the hand course, attendees will be able to query the faculty about surgical techniques and technologies, 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 we also provide opportunities for attendees 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.
