The Virtual Experience

Watch pre-recorded lectures in advance, then tune in on May 4th for live panels and small-group virtual breakouts led by expert faculty.

  • Beginning April 25th, access 30+ pre-recorded lectures to watch at your convenience.
    • Topics cover challenging areas of general, upper extremity, pelvis to femur, knee, tibia, and foot and ankle trauma.
  • During live sessions on May 4, participants separate into small-group virtual breakout rooms to review and discuss cases with faculty

With interactive Q&A and case debrief sessions, this course cultivates an interactive learning environment so you can return to practice with insights, expertise, pearls, and solutions. 

All lectures will be recorded and available through July 4th. 
Note: small group case discussions will not be recorded.

Participation Required!

This course is designed to be a highly interactive experience. Your active participation is critical to the success of this course, and we request that you come prepared to interact with your peers and faculty in engaging small-group discussions and Q&A. The more you participate, the more insight you and your fellow attendees will gain!

“Excellent course! The small-group sessions were awesome – a great opportunity to ask questions and gain tips and tricks. The availability to watch the lectures on our own time afterwards is a great benefit as well.”
