is a free orthopaedic education site designed to prepare orthopaedic surgeons for
standardized exams, including the OITE and ABOS Part I. In addition, new features
help the practicing orthopaedic surgeon communicate and consult with other orthopaedic
surgeons. You can create colleague groups, share surgical cases, and create practice
tests for yourself and residents. You have strict control over your privacy settings,
and may remain completely anonymous or share your professional information with
Content Scope & Trusted Resources
Orthopaedic surgeons have access to a wide array of orthopaedic content. The goal
is not to be a comprehensive source of information on orthopaedic conditions, nor
is it meant to be a surgical techniques guide. The goal of
is to help young orthopaedic surgeons master the extensive basic knowledge that
is required to perform well on orthopaedic standardized tests and practice as a
generalist orthopaedic surgeon.
To achieve this we have establish strict definitions on what content is included
Orthobullets. As a general rule, if it is not testable, it is not
Orthobullets. Our content only includes "tested concepts" from trusted
orthopaedic review resources and prior AAOS OITE and Self- Assessment examinations.
The content is generated and quality checked through our OSPREY (read more) educational
platform. The content is then integrated with an innovative learning technique,
called VEQTR (read more) to create a unique educational tool.
A Flashcard-like System used to Augment Text-Based Resources
is different than a text-based resource in that it follows a bullet format. It is
meant to be used as a flashcard system, where topics are reviewed briefly multiple
times as opposed to being read carefully on an infrequent basis. Therefore,
should be used to augment, and not replace, text-based resources that give a more
comprehensive knowledge of a topic. We recommend Miller Review of Orthopaedics and
the AAOS Orthopaedic Knowledge Update Series.
