Disorders of the musculoskeletal system are the primary reason that individuals seek medical attention in the United States; therefore a fundamental knowledge of musculoskeletal disorders is necessary for practicing primary care providers. The field of orthopaedics, however, is rapidly advancing which presents a challenge for primary care providers to keep pace with advancements. The goal of this program is to provide primary care physicians with an overview of some of the most common disorders of the musculoskeletal system they frequently encounter in their practice, and to offer them an opportunity to sharpen their skills in recommending surgical techniques or non-surgical treatment plans that will restore function and range of motion to their patients. After the didactic presentations, there will be breakout sessions for demonstrations and hands-on practice of the various techniques.
