Orthopaedic Sports Medicine CME Courses Provided by FORE

Orthopedic Sports Medicine CME

Each year, the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) provides a variety of orthopaedic sports medicine CME courses that cover a broad spectrum of topics that are uniquely relevant to the field.

Our live CME courses incorporate many different types of educational activities and breakout sessions, including:

  • Discussion panels hosted by highly experienced, widely published orthopaedic surgeons and other orthopaedic healthcare professionals
  • Robust Q&A sessions with keynote speakers and faculty
  • Hands-on bioksills workshops to highlight the latest medical devices and surgical techniques
  • Reviews of evidence-based best practices for surgical and non-surgical treatments

Designed for a smaller group of participants than most other CME conferences, our courses provide ample opportunities for discussion with the field’s foremost thought leaders. Surgeons, physical therapists, team physicians, strength and conditioning coaches, and athletic trainers can get answers to their questions about techniques and therapies from top orthopaedic professionals, many of whom are actively involved with research and device design. This allows for an engaging atmosphere with an emphasis on 1-on-1 communication and collaboration.
