AAOS One-Day Part II Board Preparation and Review

May 30, 2020, Virtual Course

Course #2003049

The ongoing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) has been a serious concern for us all, and its implications are substantially affecting live in-person events. The health, safety and well-being of the AAOS global community is our highest priority.

The Academy is committed to bringing world-class education to the orthopaedic community and will be offering this course as a virtual, long-distance learning experience. Accessibility and logistics details are in development and will be shared as soon as possible.



Registration for Observers still available!

Focus your preparation and gain confidence for the 2020 oral examination

Spend a virtual day with Board Certified Academy Fellows to practice and build plans for your successful case presentation and defense. Understand Part II exam expectations through:

  • Video examples of case presentations
  • Discussion with questions and answers
  • Faculty instruction on case presentation
  • Tips on presenting complication cases

Then, YOU present! Using two of your own patient cases, gain first-hand presentation experience in individual simulated oral examination sessions with fellowship-trained faculty selected across the specialties. Mock interviews will take place via video conferencing, with logistics details coming soon. 

Experience different questioning styles, get unfiltered feedback and advice, uncover common mistakes, and formulate ways to bridge gaps in your defense.

Not ready to present your cases? Not taking Part II in 2020? Be an Observer!

At a reduced rate, observing is a great opportunity to watch your peers, listen to feedback and faculty critique, and participate in the overview lectures.

For those taking the exam in the future, guide your collection and preparation year and avoid mistakes early on.

Optional Add-On: One-to-One Consultation Sessions

Sessions are filling fast! Please check session availability on the “Program Details” tab.


For an additional fee, register for one 20-minute personalized session with a faculty member to ask additional questions beyond your presentation session to further improve your presentation and defense.

  • Session 1 runs from 3:30pm – 3:50 pm
  • Session 2 runs from 4:05pm – 4:25pm

As the capacity for each session is very limited, registration is limited to one consultation slot per registrant.

Registration options for these sessions are shown during the check-out process and have an additional fee of $199.
