The AAOS Resource Center Delivers More

More valuable information on AAOS programs and initiatives, more new AAOS publications and eBooks, more self-assessment and CME programs, more interactive multimedia programs, and more ways to save with on-site discounts and package deals. These are just some of reasons to visit the AAOS Resource Center while at the AAOS Annual Meeting.

It’s all in Academy Hall E, immediately through the doors to the Technical Exhibits from Registration.  Best yet, we are open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm on Tuesday, 7:00 am to 6:00 pm on Wednesday – Friday, and from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday, so there is plenty of time to see more of what we’ve developed for you.

Your best opportunity to see more and save more!

A visit to AAOS Resource Center is your best opportunity to view new clinical publications and try out the latest interactive, multimedia programs first-hand before you buy. Headlining this year’s new products is Orthopaedic Knowledge Update 11 – available as a text, eBook or DVD-ROM. OKU 11 delivers more knowledge to power your clinical practice and MOC preparation.

Chat with some of OKU 11’s medical editors on the issues and developments shaping orthopaedics today. Dr. Lisa Cannada and her colleagues are on hand in the AAOS Resource Center each day to answer questions, talk about the new edition, and even sign your copy when you purchase OKU 11.

Instructional Course Lectures Volume 63 and the Atlas of Essential Orthopaedic Procedures also make their Annual Meeting debut, along with more new interactive multimedia, print and eBook titles. Make sure you have the most recent self-assessment examinations. Available exclusively online, these exams deliver more content and challenging patient care scenarios for a complete, hands-on learning experience.
