What do you like or dislike about AAOS satellite courses?
During the 2009 Annual Meeting, The Daily Edition of AAOS Now introduced the “Surgeon on the Street” feature. It was so popular, we decided to incorporate it into the monthly AAOS Now. This month’s question focuses on the learning experience of course directors and attendees during the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons/AAOS “Cutting Edge Developments and Controversies in Total Joint Arthroplasty” course, April 30–May 2, 2009.
The unique course took advantage of satellite technology to bring faculty surgical demonstrations and discussion to three sites simultaneously: Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Rosemont, Ill. Participants were able to share knowledge, case experiences, and questions and answers among all three sites. AAOS Now spoke to surgeons at the Orthopaedic Learning Center in Rosemont.
