The Maine Orthopaedic Review Course has provided continuing orthopaedic education for more than 40 years. The course presents a unique opportunity for study and review for residents, board candidates, and practicing orthopaedists looking toward recertification. The course is a comprehensive review with strong sections in trauma, pediatrics, adult reconstructive, hand, pathology, spine, foot/ankle, and orthopaedic basic sciences. There will be case reviews including x-rays and pathology slides. Mock oral exams are scheduled for Part II candidates. The Colby computer lab is open each evening with a complete selection of AAOS interactive programs. The rural campus of Colby offers an ideal atmosphere for study and recreation. Spend two weeks with us in Maine this June.
