Resident Orthopaedic Core Knowledge

Because Results Matter, Your Success is Our Mission

AAOS Resident Orthopaedic Core Knowledge Program – Coming Soon!

The AAOS Resident Orthopaedic Core Knowledge Program (ROCK) is an all-new, dynamic, and engaging resident learning environment. It is designed to empower residents with core foundational knowledge aligned to their individual needs, while resident program directors will have the flexibility to incorporate content at the depth, breadth, and timing necessary to achieve their program’s specific goals.

The end result is an in-depth learning resource for residents. Everything they need to pass their Boards, feel confident in their Orthopaedic In-Training Examination (OITE) scores, and be a well-rounded orthopaedic surgeon is included in this program.

And for the first time, program directors will gain a data-based understanding into how residents are spending their time on independent learning, providing an added tool to coach their residents more effectively.

Course content is delivered in two formats: bullet points for quick study and an in-depth exploration of the content in longform paragraph format.
