Attend FORE’s Annual Tampa Shoulder Course

The Tampa Shoulder Course: Arthroplasty & Sports, provided by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE),  is an excellent choice in continuing medical education for any orthopaedic professional focused on treating the shoulder and elbow. This shoulder course explores a range of key issues related to shoulder arthroplasty (anatomic and reverse), traumatic injuries to the shoulder and elbow, and sports medicine-related topics.

The Tampa Shoulder Course has been held annually for more than 25 years, and for good reason. Attendees typically report that they find the conference useful and engaging, thanks to its:

Diverse Format

Rather than consisting solely of lecture presentations, this course includes numerous group debates and case-based discussions on topics such as the use of stemless versus short-stemmed versus standard glenoid components, which type of implant design makes the most sense for reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, and how to determine if a patient should undergo surgery for a rotator cuff tear. Attendees will also view surgical procedures and can opt to participate in a pre-course bioskills workshop to gain valuable firsthand experience with new surgical techniques.

Distinguished Faculty

Well-known researchers, practitioners, and innovators from across the country will present new techniques and technologies, share surgical pearls based on their clinical experience, and discuss options for successfully managing  challenging cases. In the bioskills lab, faculty will demonstrate new techniques and then provide instruction and feedback as attendees practice what they’ve learned.
