About the Course

Friday, November 6, 2020

AAHKS sponsors the Resident Arthroplasty Course taking place just before the AAHKS Annual Meeting. AAHKS has specifically created this course for PGY3 orthopaedic residents. Course attendees receive free tuition for both the Resident Arthroplasty Course and the AAHKS Annual Meeting. In addition, AAHKS provides the lowest economy airfare up to $500, lodging, and meals.

This course provides residents with the opportunity to learn the latest information regarding total joint arthroplasty from nationally renowned experts. The course includes both didactic and small group sessions where surgical techniques and cases will be reviewed. This is a unique learning experience and includes significant interaction with the faculty.

AAHKS selects 200 residents from the United States and Canada who are eligible to participate in this learning opportunity. Priority is given to applicants who have never attended. If you have attended in the past, you will be put on a wait list and added if space remains closer to the date.
