Goals of the Conference

Through lectures, panels, case discussions, and question/answer sessions, the goals of this conference are:

To offer a diversified program of continuing education for practicing orthopedic surgeons;

Statement of Need

Responses from our prior conferences identify the need for a greater understanding of specific aspects of orthopedic surgery within the specialties of Shoulder and Elbow, Trauma, Hand, Sports, Pediatrics, Spine, Foot and Ankle and Adult Reconstructive and Arthritis. In addition, a session has been added to offer training for physicians who prescribe opioids through the CO*RE REMS Program.
