Portland Shriners Hospital offers Grand Rounds education program virtually

Earlier this year, Shriners Hospitals for Children — Portland launched an Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) -approved program, Grand Rounds, dedicated to fostering a shared culture of knowledge and expertise of pediatric orthopaedics. As leaders in the field of pediatric orthopaedics, a pillar of the Portland Shriners Hospital’s mission is to provide education to physicians and other health care providers, serving an important role in advancing the care of pediatric orthopaedic conditions. Each bimonthly lecture series includes speakers with a demonstrable history of expertise in the specialized field and focuses on discussing new and innovative treatment options for musculoskeletal conditions.

In June, the Portland Shriners Hospital will welcome Vincent Mosca, M.D., professor of orthopaedics at the University of Washington School of Medicine, and director of the Pediatric Orthopaedic Fellowship Program and the foot and ankle service at Seattle Children’s Hospital in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Mosca completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina, followed by a fellowship in pediatric orthopaedics at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada, before beginning his practice in Seattle.

Dr. Mosca was the director of the Department of Orthopaedics at Seattle Children's Hospital and the chief of pediatric orthopaedics at the University of Washington in Seattle for 13 years. He stepped down from these administrative responsibilities in 2003 to devote more time to research and writing, while maintaining his very busy clinical practice. As a specialist in foot, ankle and lower limb deficiencies, he will be presenting on the topic Understanding and Management of Pediatric Cavovarus and Skewfoot Deformities.

Shriners Hospitals for Children — Portland is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The education series is being held virtually due to community circumstances surrounding the prevention of the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). CME credits will be provided based on the time that you are present during the live stream. For more information, or to sign up for the series, please contact medical staff services coordinator, Lisa To.
