Day 1: Foundational Science of the Upper Extremity:  Anatomy & Kinesiology Review 
Days 2 and 3: Comprehensive Survey of Hand Therapy 
Day 1 Description:
A working knowledge of the anatomy and kinesiology of the upper extremity provides a solid foundation for therapeutic evaluation and intervention. Using classroom-lecture style and cadaver lab components, this pre course will review the anatomy and biomechanics of each joint, examine the brachial plexus and innervation patterns of the arm and hand and allow for faculty guided anatomy review with cadaveric specimens. This section will include 12 cadavers with 24 upper extremity anatomical structures tagged for viewing over a two-hour period. Before entering the Dissection Suite, all attendees will be required to sign a Chemical Hygiene Form, which will be provided on site. 
 
Days 2 and 3 Description:
This course is designed to provide a comprehensive review of the evaluation and intervention processes pursued for typical diagnoses in upper extremity rehabilitation. Advanced clinicians will describe fundamental concepts, clinical reasoning and evidence to provide a multi-faceted approach to the hand therapy process. Adjunctive methods for intervention will be analyzed as a means to facilitate outcomes, and expert panels will be offered throughout the weekend to allow a high level of attendee-faculty interaction via discussion panels.
