Attend a Sports Medicine Conference Organized by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE)

Sports Medicine ConferenceWhether treating professional, collegiate, or recreational athletes, orthopaedic surgeons who specialize in sports medicine are challenged to help their patients resume an active lifestyle and function at a high level. For this reason, it is crucial for these surgeons and other healthcare professionals specializing in sports medicine to stay apprised of the latest developments in this dynamic field. One way to do so is to attend a sports medicine conference organized by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE).
