AAOS Announces Special Pricing for Orthopaedics’ Most Powerful Residency Tools

ROCK, ResStudy, and OITE now available in one comprehensive bundle

Now you can take advantage of three powerhouse tools for orthopaedic residency programs, with bundle pricing on the Resident Orthopaedic Core Knowledge (ROCK) program, ResStudy, and the Orthopaedic In-Training Examination® (OITE).

When you buy the bundle, you save $139 and gain the full power of all three tools. This dynamic trio provides a comprehensive roadmap for residents, blending foundational knowledge, self-assessment, and exam preparation, all meticulously curated by leaders in the field of orthopaedics.

What is included in the bundle?
ROCK is a powerful online learning platform complete with standardized, core educational content aligned with the OITE and the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery Part 1 Examination. ROCK features 545 comprehensive chapters, featuring multimedia resources, full-text journal articles, book chapters, and 3,400 pre- and post-test questions covering 11 orthopaedic subspecialties.

Program directors can tailor study plans and assignments for the entire cohort or individual residents, track their progress, and assess their strengths and weaknesses. They can also view their program’s OITE score reports by logging on to ROCK’s performance dashboards. Reports provide a view of the program summary, individual resident scores, and performance by program year.

ResStudy is an online question bank that boasts a staggering 3,500+ questions from official AAOS Self-Assessment Exams (SAEs), including exclusive content from selected Orthopaedic Knowledge Update SAEs, Special Interest Exams, and OITEs. Delve into various orthopaedic topics and subspecialties, from anatomy and biomechanics to trauma and pediatrics.

Residents can build their own quizzes to supplement areas they need to focus on improving. Detailed explanations after each question offer valuable insights, and reports help you gauge your residents’ understanding.

The OITE is the annual exam assessing residents’ knowledge base after each year of residency. It is a comprehensive, multiple-choice, computer-based proctored exam that provides evidence of a resident’s scope of knowledge throughout their training. The OITE is a powerful tool that helps residents identify their areas of competency or identify areas for growth.

The power of the bundle
The beauty of the AAOS ROCK, ResStudy, and OITE bundle lies in its seamless integration, creating a holistic educational ecosystem for any residency program. Imagine this:

  • ROCK lays the groundwork: Residents engage with the standardized content, solidifying their foundational knowledge through comprehensive chapters and multimedia resources.
  • ResStudy personalizes the learning journey: The question bank identifies individual strengths and weaknesses, providing targeted practice with detailed explanations for continuous feedback and improvement.
  • OITE tests resident understanding: The familiar format and content aligned with ROCK and ResStudy ensure that residents approach the exam with confidence, having already mastered the material and honed their skills. Now, released OITE questions will be mapped to relevant ROCK chapters, guiding residents to the content that can help strengthen their knowledge.

It does not stop there. Program directors can:

  • Tailor ROCK pathways: Adapt study schedules to fit specific program goals and resident needs and benchmark against other participating programs.
  • Monitor progress: Track resident performance on ROCK, ResStudy, and the OITE to identify areas for further support or intervention.
  • Generate comprehensive reports: Gain valuable insights into resident strengths and weaknesses across the entire learning spectrum.

Each tool reinforces and is supported by the others, leading to a comprehensive and turnkey educational solution for any residency program. With the AAOS ROCK, ResStudy, and OITE bundle, training the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons becomes streamlined, data-driven, and ultimately more effective.
