The Virtual Experience

Watch pre-recorded lectures in advance, then tune in on May 14 for live panels and small-group virtual breakouts led by expert faculty.

Access over 40 pre-recorded lectures beginning May 5 to watch at your convenience. Topics cover challenging areas of general, upper extremity, pelvis to femur, knee, tibia, and foot and ankle trauma. 

Live sessions on May 14 feature small-group case reviews and faculty panel discussions. Participants will review cases in a general session, then separate into small-group virtual breakouts with a faculty member to discuss each case.

Also enjoy panel discussions where faculty review, discuss, and advise on treatments for challenging fracture cases. 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 13. Note: small group case discussions will not be recorded.

“This was my first online course. I had great discussion in my small group breakouts. I really like the format because the small groups, although online, still made it more intimate in the learning and discussion of these complex topics. An overall great course!”
