Our inaugural Orthopalooza MSK skills weekend was a hit. Usually part of our blended learning Orthopedic Primary Care Courses, we broke out the weekend workshop as a standalone two-day workshop event April 8 & 9.
Held at Creekside Commons in Lafayette, California, the workshop, valued at 15 contact hours, quickly sold out and we're already planning our next Orthopalooza event for September 9-10.
Education is a key focus for us at JOF -- and it was a great experience to finally be in person again with friends and colleagues at the California Association for Nurse Practitioners 44th Annual Educational Conference in Pasadena.
It was a lively event filled with learning and networking -- including presentations on menopause and foot and ankle pain by our instructors Kathleen Geier, DNP and A.J. Benham, DNP
Get ready for Orthopalooza!
Join us Friday and Saturday, April 8 & 9 for a fun and educational two days covering fundamental musculoskeletal skills and procedures common to primary care settings.
This Clinical Workshop is designed for front-line clinicians looking to acquire new evidence-based skills they can use immediately with patients.
Space is limited to 20 participants.
Much like last year, 2021 was a mixed bag of challenges and accomplishments for JOF. Despite lingering uncertainties around COVID-19, our volunteers, donors, students, preceptors, and team persevered, and we’re grateful to be able to continue our MSK-focused work through education, research, and service.
We approach the New Year with a renewed confidence, as we prepare to expand our reach to students nationwide -- and ultimately help improve the lives of orthopedic patients and the clinicians who care for them far beyond our original California/west coast roots.
Update: due to uncertainty about COVID-19, we rescheduled this event for April 8 & 9 2022. Watch for more news soon.
Get ready for Orthopalooza! Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we've had to postpone our popular Clinical Skills Workshops -- until now. We're excited to again offer one of our popular in-person, musculoskeletal skills workshops for clinicians, Oct. 8-9, valued at 15 CE Hours.
Our summer Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP) is in full swing -- and our college students are enjoying the experience of learning about health career options by shadowing clinicians. It’s those volunteer clinical professionals who make our program work, and we want to thank them all here:
We're excited to introduce our class of 2021, who recently began our summer Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP). This unique program provides college students with a unique, clinical immersion experience in healthcare as they shadow real healthcare providers (preceptors). As in 2020, we've modified the program a bit to accommodate COVID-19 health and safety protocols. As always, our students will only be observers in low-risk outpatient, orthopedic, elective care. and classroom settings.
This year's students are: Nicole Marquez, Sarah Ortiz, Cameron Thollaug, and Caymus Smith-Pierce. Our new program coordinator is 2020 HIP alum Mahnoor Yousuf.
We're the staff and volunteers at Jackson Orthopedic Foundation, committed to improving the lives of patients with musculoskeletal conditions through education, research and service.
