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.
Led by our instructors Kathleen Geier, DNP and A.J. Benham, DNP, we had 19 students participate.
Day One of Orthopalooza offered a bird's eye view of musculoskeletal fundamentals with an introduction to focused assessments and a chance to practice basic MSK exam skills.
Day Two focused on musculoskeletal injection techniques, including intra-articular injection theory and practice using specially designed extremity models with alarms.
Feedback from students was positive:
