Invitation to the 2016 ASSH Annual Meeting

Volunteer Note

Ranjan Gupta, MD and Tamara Rozental, MD

On behalf of ASSH President Neil Jones, we invite you to attend the 2016 ASSH Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.  This meeting, centered on the theme of “Inspiring Excellence,” will provide ample opportunity to expand your knowledge base and learn from international colleagues.

To garner knowledge ready to implement in your practice, cadaver precourses will spotlight trauma, soft-tissue flaps, ulnar sided wrist pain and ultrasound technology.  Furthermore, didactic precourses will cover arthroscopy, microsurgical skills and post-traumatic reconstruction.  A new precourse will also focus on launching and maintaining an active research profile for clinicians.

Numerous exciting symposia will highlight interactive sessions focused on improving clinical judgement, addressing challenging complications, understanding value-based healthcare and developing efficiency models for your practice.  In addition, we look forward to introducing you to the new Journal of Hand Surgery.

To gain a wider perspective on the practice of hand surgery around the world, ICLs will include international panelists, and we are excited to welcome many colleagues from around the world.  The scientific program will concentrate on 80 papers representing the best of the 600 submissions.  

If the educational opportunities alone are not enough to entice you, plan on enjoying Texas BBQ, live music and hand surgeons from around the world as we convene for the first ASSH meeting to be held in Austin, Texas!  Please register for the September 29-October 1, 2016 ASSH Annual Meeting.  We look forward to seeing you!
