- Analyze the importance of value (quality per cost) and surgeon’s responsibility to society to optimize value in upper extremity trauma care.
- Apply technical tips and tricks and clinical pitfalls and pearls to improve performance in practice.
The course is directed to physicians and hand residents and fellows.
