Orthopaedic Conferences with Hands-On Workshops

Orthopaedic Conferences

The orthopaedic conferences organized by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) emphasize hands-on learning and the real-life application of surgical concepts. Designed by medical professionals for medical professionals, our conferences are built on the idea that putting principles into practice is the best way to retain information. Featuring live surgical demonstrations and bioskills workshops offered alongside traditional didactic presentations and panel discussions, our orthopaedic conferences are some of the most engaging in the industry.

FORE offers conferences that are open to any individual whose practice involves orthopaedics, including:

  • Surgeons
  • Physician assistants
  • Nurses and nurse practitioners
  • Physical therapists
  • Residents and fellows
  • Athletic trainers

Courses for the Orthopaedic Sub-Specialties

FORE hosts orthopaedic conferences focused on a wide range of topics, including orthopaedic trauma, sports medicine, and the shoulder and elbow. Participants can choose a conference that best reflects their current practice or expand their clinical capabilities in a sub-specialty that they’d like to learn more about. We have conferences dedicated to upper extremity surgery, lower extremity surgery, rehabilitation therapy, knee surgery, and other areas of expertise.

Participants are also invited to claim CME credits commensurate with their participation in each event. FORE is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and is approved by the Board of Certification to provide continuing education for certified athletic trainers.
