OITE registration
Any orthopaedic surgeon interested in taking the 2007 Orthopaedic In-Training Examination (OITE) should register by Oct. 15, 2007. The 2007 OITE can help fulfill the continuing medical education (CME) requirements mandated by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process but cannot be applied to the “scored and recorded” self-assessment examination requirement mandated by the ABOS MOC Process. Orthopaedic surgeons who participate in the central scoring are eligible for a maximum of 15 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Information on the OITE was mailed to AAOS members in June. To order by credit card, call (800) 346-2267, ext. 4107 or contact the AAOS Evaluation Department, 6300 N. River Rd, Rosemont, IL 60018-4262.

OSAE scoring for 2007
The next scoring date for the “scored and recorded” 2005 Orthopaedic Self-Assessment Examination (OSAE) is September 10. The remaining 2007 OSAE scored and recorded scoring dates are Oct 31 and Dec 21. Answer sheets or online answer files must be received by the Academy office by the date indicated to be included for scoring. Please allow two to three weeks for your score report to be processed and returned to you.
