912 Agenda Cover
Course agenda

This course will focus on areas of shoulder surgery that are in the highest demand: arthroscopy skills, diagnostic and interventional ultrasound, and orthobiologics. Practical cadaver lab practice, exposure to expert demonstrations, and case-based panel discussions will round out the course. Lab instruction will be individualized and tailored to each participant’s needs. There will also be interactive discussions on surgical and non-surgical decision-making, evidence-based literature reviews, and little-known tips and tricks that may make the difference between surgical success and failure. Attendees will have the option to experience 2-on-1 or 1-on-1 learning with a skilled instructor to maximize cadaver time and create a unique surgical learning experience. There will also be plenty of time for group discussion, questions and case presentations, allowing each attendee an opportunity to interact and share with the group as a whole. Our goal is to provide the most individualized learning experience possible.
