  • Question: Are the the AAOS SAE Questions the same questions published by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons?
  • Question: If I want a study plan with my Virtual Curriculum, where do I sign up?
    • Answer: To purchase Virtual Curriculum with a study plan, choose your study plan and purchase from the study plan page.  Purchasing any study plan will automatically give you 12-month access to all premium content in the Virtual Curriculum.  But if you purchase the Virtual Curriculum as a stand-alone product first, you can join any study plan by emailing us at (response time is 1 business day, Monday-Friday).  We will be adding automation for study plan sign-ups in the coming weeks. 
  • Question: What if I am a member of the group but am still not receiving daily emails in my inbox?
    • Answer: Check your spam folder and promotions folder on Gmail. 
      • Because Orthobullets sends high volumes of email, our email is sometimes filtered into spam folders or promotions folders. Be sure to look there for our emails. If you find an Orthobullets email in your spam folder, mark us as "not spam" and add to your contact list to avoid this in the future. If you are still not receiving emails, send us a message at and we will help you resolve the issue.
  • Question: What if I forget to click the grey "Return to Merchant" button on PayPal after I paid?
    • Answer: Send us an email at and we will add you to the Study Plan.
  • Question: How do I get to the Study Plan private group?
    • Answer: Click groups in the top menu, then click on the logo for the group.
  • Question: What if my name on PayPal does not match my Orthobullets account?
    • Answer: As long as you remember to click the grey "Return to Merchant" button, it does not matter if your PayPal account and Orthobullets account are different. When you login at, use your email and password that you always use on Orthobullets.
  • Question: If I bought another Study Plan in the last 12 months, can I get access to a Virtual Curriculum subscription?
    • Answer: Yes. Our Study Plans are a subset of the Virtual Curriculum subscription.  If you have already signed up for one Study Plan - or the Virtual Curriculum Subscription - you will continue to enjoy access to all of our Study Plans during the remaining part of your 12-month Study Plan/Virtual Curriculum subscription.
    • If you have purchased another Study Plan in the past 12 months, and you would like to be added to a different Study Plan, please send us a message at and we will add you within one business day (M-F).  We will be adding automation for this sign-up process in the coming weeks.
    • IMPORTANT - If you only have 4 months remaining on your 12-month subscription, you will only be able to obtain the first 4 months of the new study plan.
