Designed for the infectious diseases practitioner, this is Mayo Clinic's first course dedicated entirely to the challenges of managing orthopedic infections. The course will feature highly interactive, case-based modules starting with a series of high-yield lightning topics delivered by subject matter experts addressing diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Examples include discordant MSIS criteria for PJI; significance of the unexpected positive intra-operative culture; and use of oral antibiotics for treatment of musculoskeletal infections. The lightning topics are followed by case-based group discussions led by a panel of experts. 

The course will take place at the same place and time as the International Congress for Joint Reconstruction (ICJR), a premier orthopedic CME course. There will be a two-hour combined session with the participating orthopedic surgeons to discuss mutually relevant topics such as antibiotic dosing for spacers/local antibiotic delivery; issues surrounding join re-implantation (timing of re-implant, surveillance ESR/CRP, the pre-implant aspiration); when to consider one-stage exchange; and post re-implant extended prophylaxis. Attendees will leave with up-to-date, practical information that can be applied immediately to their clinical practice. 

Learning Objectives:
• Interpret discordant MSIS criteria in the diagnosis of PJI
• Formulate an appropriate treatment duration post-DAIR
• Analyze the significance of an unexpected intra-operative positive culture including Cutibacterium acnes
• Describe the treatment approach for uncommon causes of PJI such as fungal, mycobacterial, and difficult to culture organisms
• Apply and implement findings of the OVIVA trial, landmark RTC for our field
• Recognize the basics of phage therapy, a novel therapeutic strategy 
• Demonstrate the management of non-lower extremity PJI orthopedic infections including vertebral Infections, upper Extremity PJI, pressure ulcers, diabetic feet and long bone osteomyelitis

Course Highlights:
• First course dedicated entirely to orthopedic infections
• Highly interactive case-based modules
• Series of high-yield "lightning topics" delivered by subject matter experts addressing diagnostic and therapeutic challenges
• Combined sessions with orthopedic colleagues for first hand perspectives on comprehensive medical and surgical management of orthopedic infections
