Statement of Need

The field of musculoskeletal medicine is highly dynamic and rapidly changing. Research findings are resulting in new techniques and clinical guidelines. Orthopaedic surgeons and clinicians are expected to keep abreast of these advances to provide optimal patient care based on the latest scientific evidence.

The Visiting Professor Lecture Series is designed to augment both the basic science and applied clinical practice knowledge and competence of our attending physicians. Information presented in these lectures focuses on both musculoskeletal research and related clinical science perspectives.
