The Adrian E. Flatt Residents and Fellows Conference in Hand Surgery, funded by the American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand, is specifically geared toward hand surgery residents and fellows in orthopaedic, plastic and general surgery.  Every year a new program is developed to create an opportunity for Residents and Fellows to learn about their practice, exchange information and network with peers and respected surgeons in this practice. 

This conference, held the day before the beginning of the Annual Meeting, also allows selected participants to present their work and research to their peers which are judged by the Residents and Fellows Conference Program Committee.  The best paper presentation is awarded with the Joseph H. Boyes Award at the conclusion of the conference and the opportunity to present his or her paper during the ASSH Annual Meeting.  To learn more about how to submit a paper or poster for consideration to be presented at the Residents and Fellows Conference, visit the Call for Abstracts.

Attendees will be able to hear paper presentations and view poster presentations from fellow peers during the Scientific Sessions, panel discussions from top hand surgeons and lectures, such as the Richard J. Smith Lecture, from past presidents of the Hand Society.
