President's Message

The last issue of The Diplomate focused on the process of creating Computer Examinations. This issue will describe the development, delivery, and scoring of Oral Examinations.

Executive Medical Director's Report

Out of the 29,000 American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) Board Certified orthopaedic surgeons, more than 4,000 hold a Subspecialty Certificate in Surgery of the Hand, Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, or both. The ABOS has a method where Diplomates can apply to recertify both their General and one of their Subspecialty Certificates at one time, with one examination.

Exam Data
One hundred Diplomates passed the initial Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Subspecialty Examination in 2016 (98% of those who took the examination).
