This one-day review course, brought to you by the AAOS and ASSH, prepares you for the general orthopaedic questions on the Subspecialty Certificate in Surgery of the Hand. Held just one day prior to the ASSH Comprehensive Review in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery course, this is a convenient opportunity to review generally accepted principles of orthopaedics across the specialties and prepare to maintain your certification. Your skilled faculty of experienced clinicians will focus on what you need to know in all the other specialty areas of orthopaedics for the exam. In addition, multiple choice questions are presented throughout the course allowing for further discussion of the course topics.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Develop a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental knowledge base required for Maintenance of Certification
- Sharpen clinical decision-making using contemporary clinical, laboratory and diagnostic imaging methods to manage pediatric and adult musculoskeletal disorders
- Compare and contrast current non-operative and operative treatment of a wide spectrum of orthopaedic conditions including shoulder, lower extremity, spine and pediatrics
- Recognize the spectrum of surgical management of reconstructive and traumatic musculoskeletal conditions and the indications and contraindications for each
- Discuss current orthopaedic literature concerning a wide array of common musculoskeletal conditions in children and adults
- Review the standard of care for management of musculoskeletal conditions
