An interactive learning experience designed exclusively for residents

Working in pairs with another attendee, you'll have your own knee and shoulder cadaver specimens to practice arthroscopy skills. 

Stay engaged with a dynamic mix of lectures, live and video surgical demonstrations, knot-tying sessions and faculty-participant discussion. Spend the majority of the course in the hands-on cadaver lab practicing:

  • ACL Reconstruction
  • Partial Meniscectomy
  • Rotator Cuff Repair
  • Subacromial Decompression
  • Labral Surgery
  • Biceps Procedures
  • Meniscus Repair

“The ability to practice on cadavers without the time constraints of the operating room schedule made all the difference in learning, making adjustments, and experimenting with different available options. This will all translate to better patient care!"   - Previous Course Attendee
