Distinguished Research & Honorary Service Lectures
Hospital for Special Surgery's Visiting Professor Lecture Series presents both Distinguished Research Lectures and Honorary Service Lectures in one annual series of coordinated presentations. Since 1968, this series has showcased lectures by renowned visiting faculty who are nationally and internationally recognized for their expertise in our field. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits can be earned for attendance. This year, the series continues to offer an impressive schedule of outstanding medical faculty who will present on timely topics.
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 in order to achieve optimal clinical practice and patient care.
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.
