Shopping may not be the first thing you think about at the AAOS 75th Annual Meeting. But pause a moment to consider this once-a-year opportunity to shop the Academy’s Resource Center Bookstore and its satellite location in Publisher’s Row. You’ll find the best selection of peer-reviewed and unbiased publications, exams, and electronic programs exploring the breadth and depth of orthopaedics.

Expand your personal library with new titles that mirror your changing practice profile or that provide the newest thinking for an established practice. Orthopaedic Knowledge Update (OKU) 9 and the collection of OKU specialty titles digest years of literature into readable, condensed discussions that inform and save you time. Instructional Course Lectures (ICL) 57 and its ICL specialty titles provide experts’ opinions in every specialty area—explaining the whys, hows, and pearls and pitfalls of their techniques.

Take the time to examine the Academy’s complete display of clinical titles. You’ll find many other publications that deserve your attention.

If you’re preparing for Maintenance of Certification™ (MOC) or simply wish to measure your cognitive knowledge, you can rely on AAOS exams to do both. From the comprehensive Orthopaedic Self-Assessment Examination to the nine focused exams in the Orthopaedic Special Interest Examination series, you can choose versions that are self-administered and provide a wealth of valuable continuing medical education (CME) credits.

E-titles and anniversary specials
The Resource Center Bookstore is an excellent place to test drive an entire library of electronic titles. Onsite computers, DVD players, and a friendly AAOS staff demonstrate surgical skills programs that are virtual fellowship training programs. Other titles excerpt highlights from skills courses taught at the world-famous Orthopaedic Learning Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

To celebrate the AAOS 75th Anniversary, you can save big with special discounts on purchases of $295 or more and special bundled-package prices. Come early…while supplies last, you can receive a free gift for just browsing the Resource Center Bookstore.

So plan to visit the Resource Center Bookstore for clinical resources, self-assessment exams, and electronic programs that focus on technical training. The Resource Center Bookstore opens daily at 7:30 a.m. and is located in the South Lobby of the Moscone Center. The satellite Publisher’s Row location is Booth #4160 of the Exhibit Hall and is open through Friday.
