The first ever combined knee and shoulder course will help you to advance your knowledge and hone your skills in the OR with the help of a world class faculty. This Apex Series course features a one on one mini-fellowship laboratory experience with the opportunity to “design your own lab” and concentrate on the skills you need to learn. We encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to participate in both the knee and shoulder segments of the course but you can elect to do either the knee or shoulder portions alone. Didactic sessions will feature a “Case Based” approach with interactive sessions featuring your participation along with AANA’s leading experts in knee and shoulder surgery. The combined course offers over 17 hours of laboratory time and a Saturday night training session on the use of diagnostic and needle guidance ultrasonography
