AAOS One-Day Part II Board Preparation and Review
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 is working to develop virtual alternatives for in-person spring CME courses. Details will be posted online and communicated to current registrants as soon as possible.
Focus your preparation and gain confidence for the 2020 oral examination
Spend a 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 three of your own patient cases, gain first-hand presentation experience in individual simulated oral examination sessions with 2 fellowship-trained faculty per session, selected across the specialties. Experience different questioning styles, get unfiltered feedback and advice, uncover common mistakes, and formulate ways to bridge gaps in your defense.
Optional Add-On: One-to-One Consultation Sessions
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 4:45 pm - 5:05 pm
- Session 2 runs from 5:10 pm - 5:30 pm
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.
Here's what you can expect!
“I feel more motivated and focused in preparing for the exam - what to focus on the next 2 months, what to read up on, and what to practice."
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.
Join the preparation webinar on March 12 to find out how best to spend your prep time over the next year, and avoid commonly made mistakes right out of the gate.
