OVERVIEW

The Core Curriculum is designed to be an annual daily reading plan aimed at building and maintaining a core foundation of orthopaedic knowledge and staying current with the literature. Because only 1-2 topics are reviewed per day, Monday through Saturday, with Sunday reserved for rest or catch up, it is designed to encourage healthy, balanced, daily reading. We recommend this study plan for:

  • PGY1-PGY5 residents;
  • physicians preparing for the 2021 General MOC who want to prepare in advance;
  • physicians who want to receive general orthopaedic CME and SAE by reading small amounts of information on a daily basis to stay current with the orthopaedic literature.
  • physicians who want to watch expert videos from live meeting without taking the time out of their clinical practive to travel to live meetings.

FACULTY DISCLOSURES

FORE (accredited CME provider) endorses the standards of the ACCME that requires everyone in a position to control the content of a CME activity to disclose all financial relationships with commercial interests that are related to the content of the CME activity. CME activities must be balanced, independent of commercial bias, and promote improvements or quality in healthcare. All recommendations involving clinical medicine must be based on evidence accepted within the medical profession.

A conflict of interest is created when individuals in a position to control the content of CME have a relevant financial relationship with a commercial interest which therefore may bias his/her opinion and teaching. This may include receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, stocks or other financial benefits.

FORE has identified, reviewed and resolved all conflicts of interest that speakers, authors, or planners disclose prior to an educational activity being delivered to learners. Disclosure of a relationship in not intended to suggest or condone bias in any presentation. Rather, disclosure is required so participants can make a fair and comprehensive evaluation of a presentation.

Relevant financial relationships exist between the following individuals and commercial interests.

Testimonials
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.
