Education

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Reseach and Continuing Education (FORCE) strives to improve patient care and foster the educational development of healthcare professionals.  By offering quality continuous medical education (CME) activities on a variety of comprehensive othopaedic topics, the goal is to provide learners with the knowledge and skills to positively impact healthcare services.    

FORCE is committed to designing CME activities that meet the needs of the target audience.  Each activity is developed in collaboration with prominent physicians and professional providers with the insight necessary to enhance the competencies of the learner.  As a dynamic CME provider, FORCE delivers educational  programs to a vast scope of healthcare professionals, including primary care physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, rehabilitation therapists, and athletic trainers.

FORCE recognizes the continuous medical advances in healthcare and focuses on the latest issues in medicine and technology.  Needs assessments are done on each program with the intention to provide new knowledge to the learner.  Program evaluations are encouraged in order to provide feedback, which assists in identifing positive ways to improve future CME activities.

All CME activities are planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for CME (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Continuing Education (FORCE).
