The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) is on hand to discuss Board Certification options, help you determine your progress, and clarify your requirements and how to fulfill them. You can also learn about the ABOS Web-based Longitudinal Assessment pathway and other assessment options for recertification and explore self-assessment examinations on a broad range of topics relevant to your practice and patient care, helping you meet MOC requirements and goals.
Academy Hall also features a listing of upcoming orthopaedic didactic and hands-on skills courses from the Academy and other societies to help you secure continuing medical education credits. Try your hand at a number of interactive learning tools, activities, and programs that test your knowledge and hone your skills through microlearning lessons, self-assessment, educational videos, on-demand modules, and more.
