President's Message

Happy New Year! In the last issue of The Diplomate, I discussed ways in which the Board of Directors is using feedback from diplomates to produce new exams that will be more relevant to your practice. In this issue, I would like to tell you about two more initiatives that we are working on that in the future may benefit diplomates, patients, and orthopaedic residents.


The ABOS plans more diplomate surveys and a more interactive website in 2016 and beyond.

Executive Assistant

Keeping with my theme of writing about the ABOS staff, starting with those who have been with ABOS the longest, we are now at the fourth team member who has worked for the ABOS for over 20 years.
Before you can sit for your recertification examination, you need to have 240 continuing medical education (CME) credits submitted and approved by ABOS, with at least 40 of these credits from self-assessment examinations (SAE). The ABOS has a new way you can earn these SAE credits, often by doing what you are already doing.

 All 2015 recertification examinations: 1654
 Passed: 1609 (97%)
