Participate in hands-on learning during ASSH's arthroplasty lab covering the hand, wrist and elbow. As part of our Master Skills Series, this program has a unique course format focused on the ultimate lab experience. During each of the six scheduled labs, attendees choose their own topic, from the leading manufacturers to practice surgical skills, with guidance from hand and upper extremity experts.
Particular emphasis will be placed on operative pearls relative to each implant. Instead of the typical didactic lectures, case study leaders will moderate case reviews and facilitate discussion to highlight the pearls and pitfalls of hand, wrist and elbow arthroplasty. The participant to faculty ratio is low, so you get better facilitation, interaction, communication and learning.
The ASSH designates this live activity for a maximum of 12.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Pre-application deadline is June 28th
