This course is full, and we are no longer adding to the waitlist.

The AAHKS Resident Arthroplasty Course

The Annual Resident Course takes place on Friday, November 2, 2018 from 7:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. just before the start of the AAHKS Annual Meeting general session at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

About the Course

AAHKS sponsors the Annual Resident Arthroplasty Course that takes 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 meeting 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 140 residents from the United States and Canada who are eligible to participate in this learning opportunity.
