The course will consist of two 5-day sessions, available in April and November each year. Participants can choose one or both week-long sessions. Each week will consist of pertinent lectures followed by demonstrations and subsequent mentored hands-on cadaveric experience. Each participant will have four fresh cadaveric specimens, thereby providing them with eight joints each week on which to perform procedures. Faculty will be very engaged in one-on-one hands-on teaching and will be available throughout each entire session.

Our sponsors generously provide arthroscopic, total joint prostheses and arthroplasty materials and equipment for your use.

CE Credits

A total of 40 hours of Continuing Education Credits will be issued for either of the 5-day sessions.

CE will be provided by the University of Maryland.


Each session will take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Monday and Tuesday starting at 8am on and ending at 5 pm each day.  Lunch will be provided each of the 5 days of each session. There will all be a hosted welcome reception Friday evening of each session.
