Phoenix, AZ, April 26th, 2019 - SurgeonMasters Founder Jeffrey M. Smith, MD, FACS, CPC will deliver the keynote address on physician well-being, “Surgeon Wellness” at the Acumed Upper Extremity Trauma Surgical Skills Course taking place April 26-27, 2019 at Science Care.

The two day event will cover the latest treatment options for fractures to upper extremity limbs. The conference features expert faculty, cadaveric hands-on labs, engaging lectures, and difficult case discussions. Course faculty will address treatments for upper extremity injuries covering distal radius fractures, scapula fractures, distal humerus fractures, Forearm Fractures, Proximal Humerus Fractures, and Clavicle Fractures.

Last year I spoke to Acumed leadership about surgeon wellness, and the entire group was engaged and wanted to know more. Now I’m the invited keynote speaker for an Acumed sponsored course to deliver the important and personal wellness message directly to surgeons. Kudos to Acumed for their commitment to improving the delivery of patient care both through their products and the support of surgeons.” - Jeff Smith, MD, Founder of SurgeonMasters

The Acumed Upper Extremity Surgical Skills Course is a two-day cadaveric program co-chaired by Dr. Lisa Lattanza and Dr. Mike McKee. We know that our course attendees are extremely busy and have many personal and professional obligations demanding their time. Therefore, we wanted to bring in a unique offering to our course, one that highlights the need for physicians to be cognizant of potential burnout and learn wellness techniques to help them thrive both personally and professionally. We have had the pleasure of attending several burnout prevention talks by Dr. Jeff Smith with SurgeonMasters and felt that this would be a wonderful and unique value add to provide to our course attendees.” - Rachel Edwards, Acumed
