Improve Your Surgical Skills at FORE’s Hand and Upper Extremity Course in Tampa, FL

Hand CourseWhen your professional focus is treating the hand and upper extremity, you will benefit the most from attending continuing education conferences that are devoted exclusively to this specialty. That’s why FORE, among its diverse variety of events, holds a hand and upper extremity course every year called Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery. At this conference, you can receive a comprehensive update on the latest breakthroughs related to hand and upper extremity surgery from true leaders within this field. The event covers topics such as indications for surgery, the outcomes that different techniques produce, and potential surgical complications. Some of the specific types of procedures that will be discussed include:

  • Fracture care
  • Reconstruction
  • Other forms of arthroplasty

Engage Fully with the Material Being Presented

Although listening to experts give presentations is certainly valuable in many cases, we also like for the attendees at our events to gain hands-on experience with new techniques and technologies, rather than simply hearing about them. For this reason, we supplement lectures and panel discussions with bioskills labs that give you the opportunity to learn about specific surgical methods and then practice them under the supervision of an expert faculty. For instance, the first day of our hand and upper extremity course is dedicated entirely to a cadaveric lab that will enable you to practice procedures such as plating, arthrodesis and internal bracing.

But our emphasis on participant engagement doesn’t end there. Throughout the other portions of our hand and upper extremity course, we encourage the people in attendance to openly discuss their ideas and benefit from the shared experience in the room through question-and-answer sessions and other interactive elements.
