Please note that all 2016/2017 self-assessment examinations will be available on the new AAOS online learning platform beginning Thursday, March 1. Because questions answered in the current legacy system will NOT transfer over to the new system, we encourage accessing the examination after March 1. After this date, log in with your AAOS credentials at www.aaos.org/mylibrary, or access the exam via our new online learning platform: learn.aaos.org under the "My Activities" tab.
If you have already purchased this self-assessment program, you may log in and begin taking it here.
