53rd Annual AAOS Course for Orthopaedic Educators

Program Details

Course Highlights


Equip yourself with the tools to facilitate resident learning, evaluate resident and program goals and problems, and address important considerations in academic faculty career development. You’ll learn a variety of approaches to teach orthopaedic residents and communicate educational concepts and proposals to students, peers, and program leaders.

The accelerated two-day online program gives you the tools to:

  • Improve clinical and surgical skills teaching
  • Plan and implement better resident rotations
  • Evaluate the current effectiveness of your own teaching practices
