What is RISE?:
The Rush International Spine Education (RISE) program is a bold new initiative that provides novel education, via blended learning to address the diagnosis, treatment, outcomes and preventive measure of various spinal disorders.

Blended learning fuses online education with more in-person, interactive contact instruction; thereby, elevating and complementing the learning experience with “theoretical knowledge” and “practical skills.”

RISE consists of Faculty from the Departments of Orthopedic Surgery and Neurosurgery at Rush University with Visiting Faculty from other institutions (e.g. Harvard University, Hospital for Special Surgery).
