Orthopaedic Surgery Conferences Provided by FORE, the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education

Orthopaedic Surgery Conferences

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) is one of the top providers of orthopaedic CME in the US, offering live orthopaedic surgery conferences throughout the year. With an exclusive focus on orthopaedics, FORE’s conferences highlight today’s most relevant advances in shoulder, spine, foot and ankle, and upper extremity surgery, as well as sports medicine and orthopaedic trauma. FORE’s conferences are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

Benefit from a Diverse Conference Format

FORE’s orthopaedic surgery conferences include unique combinations of:

  • Case-based panel discussions
  • Didactic presentations
  • Point/counterpoint debates
  • Q&A sessions
  • Live surgical demonstrations (at select conferences)
  • Hands-on bioskill labs (at select conferences)

During these sessions, leaders in orthopaedic surgery present novel surgical approaches, demonstrate emerging technologies, and review current best practices to help conference attendees improve their clinical skills. At many of these orthopaedic surgery conferences, attendees can also participate in workshops where they can try out new techniques and technologies under the guidance of the expert faculty, enabling them to put into practice the strategies that have been presented during the course.

FORE conferences emphasize not only hands-on activity, but also 1-on-1 and small-group discussions. They are smaller than most other orthopaedic meetings, allowing for a greater level of debate and interaction.

Orthopaedic CME that Aligns with Your Professional Interests

FORE stands out as a CME provider because we focus exclusively on serving orthopaedic surgeons and other orthopaedic healthcare professionals. We understand that practitioners want to attend courses that present information through the lens of their area of specialization.

To provide attendees with the maximum benefit, we offer courses tailored to many orthopaedic subspecialties. Our current course offerings are listed below. You can also review an up-to-date list on our conference schedule webpage and stay current on new CME opportunities by registering for our mailing list.


Traumatic injuries are some of their most challenging cases for orthopaedic surgeons. We offer several orthopaedic trauma conferences that explore surgery-related topics.

  • Evolving Concepts in Orthopaedic Trauma (Park City, Utah)
  • Current Solutions in Orthopaedic Trauma (Tampa, Florida)


Spine surgeons and neurosurgeons can learn about advances in the field of spine surgery and network with their colleagues at FORE’s annual spine conferences. Both courses have long provided excellent opportunities for surgeons to stay informed of new research findings, surgical techniques, and emerging technologies in their ever-evolving field.

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

Upper Extremity

FORE’s courses on shoulder and upper extremity surgery highlight not only the most effective treatment options available, but  also allow surgeons to practice key surgical techniques using the latest technologies in our hands-on bioskills lab.

  • Tampa Shoulder Course: Arthroplasty & Sports (Tampa, Florida)
  • Critical Concepts in Shoulder & Elbow Surgery (Las Vegas, Nevada)
  • Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery (Tampa, Florida)

Lower Extremity

FORE’s annual Current Solutions in Foot & Ankle Surgery conference (Tampa, Florida) provides a valuable educational opportunity for surgeons who specialize in treating the lower extremity. This orthopaedic surgery conference features presentations on managing pilon fractures, fibular malunions, Lisfranc injuries, lateral ankle instability, peroneal tendon tears, and other common disorders.
