PALACADEMY® - Your Resource for Supplementary Education in Orthopedics

Traditionally a multi-day live event, our PALACADEMY® programs are designed to allow perioperative nurses, leaders, and staff to connect, share best practices, and experience engaging, hands-on workshops taught by some of the leading experts in the orthopedic industry. Past US sessions have met in Nashville, Las Vegas, and Tampa – while international sessions have met in locations all over Europe and the rest of the world.

In response to the situation surrounding COVID-19, and out of respect for nurses and staff working on the front lines of the pandemic, we are offering our 2020 Fall PALACADEMY® programming online, and on-demand. More information on this event series can be found below.
