FORE Offers Orthopaedic Conferences Throughout Florida

Orthopedic Conferences Florida

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) is a leading provider of orthopaedic continuing education, hosting events in Florida and other areas of the United States. FORE’s orthopaedic conferences offer practitioners a comprehensive overview of the latest advances in orthopaedics, with topics updated on an annual basis to highlight new research, treatments, and technology.

One reason why orthopaedic surgeons and other orthopaedic healthcare professionals choose to attend FORE conferences is that these conferences are highly interactive in nature, giving attendees the opportunity to engage 1-on-1 with presenters and to participate in dynamic group discussions. Many of FORE’s meetings also include bioskills labs and hands-on workshops where participants can gain valuable firsthand experience with the surgical techniques and devices being discussed.
