 "I heard today that our average OITE scores for the program are up from last year which is a big accomplishment. I attribute that to our OITE focus that we've had this year guided by the Orthobullets curriculum and the frequent testing. I am going to tell everyone that they really need to be following the Core Curriculum in the upcoming years to ensure the scores stay high and continue to improve.“

Patient Care
 
Keeping the residents in the surgical "sweet zone" to utlized faculty teaching time more efficiently while keeping patients safe.
 
 
 The Skillmaster & Technique Guide is a data-driven checklist, with over 2500+ skills and 10,000+ task that a resident must check off to become a competent and well trained surgeon.

All of the skills are rated in 5 levels of complexity, so the resident can master the simpler skills associated with a procedure before moving on to the next skill.

Each skill has associated educational content, and a series of  tasks the resident must complete in order to be prepared to attempt the skill (eg., read the steps, watch of video, read a related article, take a quiz of the associated anatomy).
