Record Early Enrollment for Lower Extremity Fellows, Residents & Young Surgeon 3rd Annual Course

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Magnifi Group, Inc. and Bespa Global, LLC, co-organizers of the program, announced today that despite the change of date for its 3rd Annual Lower Extremity IEP Fellows, Residents and Young Surgeons Course it is still experiencing record early registration. The course, originally scheduled for May 1-3 will take place from November 6-8, 2020 at The Omni Downtown, Austin, Texas.

This increased level of interest has been attributed to COVID-19 and the lack of in-person training opportunities for these young clinicians.

Lower Extremity IEP Program Co-chair, Dr. Donald R. Bohay, who serves as Professor Orthopaedic Surgery, Michigan State University and the Director of Grand Rapids Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Fellowship Program, said now more than ever, the prior and incoming class of Orthopedic Fellows and Final Year Podiatric Residents will significantly benefit from the Lower Extremity IEP Course.

"Given the current pandemic, these residents and fellows have not had the opportunity to participate in the usual array of cases, cadaver labs and in-person educational sessions," Dr. Bohay said. Dr. Bohay added that the impact is not limited to large COVID-19 cluster cities - it has impacted centers and schools across the country.

The Lower Extremity IEP Fellows, Residents & Young Surgeons' Course has been specifically developed to educate Fellows, Residents and Young Surgeons on current topics related to the practice of foot and ankle surgery, as well as to assist attendees with the transition from academics to practicing surgeon. The classroom format for the course is highly interactive; all sessions conclude with question/answer sessions and panel discussions. The course will be limited to 35 attendees to accommodate a didactics rotation schedule of up to 15 tables hosted by medical device and biologics companies. Cadaver labs will also be offered during the intense 21/2 day course.

Dr. Christopher L. Reeves, Program Co-chair and Faculty and Director of Research Advent Health Podiatric Surgical Residency, said he anticipates registration will fill up by mid-September. "The registration process will pick up even faster once the outgoing group of fellows and residents know their schedules and the incoming group are firmly in place."

The Lower Extremity IEP Fellows, Residents & Young Surgeons' Course is led by Dr. Gregory C. Pomeroy, Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of New England.

Magnifi Group, Inc. is a developer of a FDA-compliant eLearning platform for the medical device and biologics industries. The company also hosts the Spine IEP Live Fellows Course; the Lower Extremity IEP Live Fellows Course and the Hip and Knee IEP Live Fellows Course.

Bespa Global, LLC is dedicated to improving patient care through education and advancements in medical science. Our unique model is changing the way Medical Companies and Health Care Professionals work together to improve patient outcomes.

Record Early Spine Fellows & Young Surgeon Enrollment for 10th Annual November Spine IEP Course

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Magnifi Group, Inc., announced today it is experiencing record early registration for its 10th Annual Spine IEP Fellows & Young Surgeons' Course (Spine Interactive Educational Program). The course will be conducted November 20-22 at The Fairmont Hotel, Austin, Texas.

A significant number of US Spine Fellowship Directors attribute the stepped-up early registration due to COVID-19.

Spine IEP Faculty member, Dr. R. Todd Allen, who serves as Associate Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Spine Surgery at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and Director of the University's Spine Fellowship program, said, now more than ever, the incoming Spine and Neuro Fellowship class of 2020-2021 will significantly benefit from the Spine IEP Course.

"Given the current pandemic, final-year Orthopaedic residents looking ahead to their spine fellowships, have not had the opportunity to take full advantage of their final residency year when it comes to surgical electives - as they relate to didactic spine work, labs and clinical training," Dr. Allen said. Dr. Allen added that even those schools offering a Chief Resident Rotation have been impacted.

The Spine IEP Fellows & Young Surgeons' Course will be limited to 50 attendees to accommodate a didactics rotation schedule of 45 tables hosted by medical device and biologics companies. Four cadaver labs will also be offered during the intense 21/2 day course.

The Spine IEP has been specifically developed to educate spine and neurosurgery Fellows and Young Surgeons on current topics related to the practice of spine and neurosurgery, as well as to assist attendees with the transition from academics to practicing surgeon. The classroom format for the course is highly interactive; all sessions conclude with question/answer sessions and panel discussions.

Laura McClain, Course Coordinator, said she anticipates registration fill up as early as July/August. "The upcoming course will represent the largest gathering ever of Spine Fellows and Young Surgeons for an educational event of this kind," McClain said. "Our sponsors also recognize that this course represents a significant opportunity to expose their latest techniques, products and treatments to the next-generation of spine and neuro surgeons," McClain added.

The Spine IEP Fellows & Young Surgeons' Course is led by Dr. Frank Phillips, Professor and Director, Division of Spine Surgery and Fellowship Co-Director, Spine Surgery at Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Ill. To register: https://www.spine-iep.com/sfc/register.html

According to Magnifi data, an average of 70-80 spine Fellows enters the US market each year as practicing spine surgeons. Of these, 48-50 Fellows & Young Surgeons are expected to attend the upcoming course.
