The goal of AAOE & AOC’s National On-Demand Digital Curriculum is to provide the critical information and skills needed for residents, fellows, and new faculty to be better prepared for job search and the business of orthopaedics. With over 30 presentations delivered by true national subject matter experts spanning academic practice, private practice, healthcare law, and healthcare leadership development firms, the 25-60 minute video modules provide a permanent source of tools to strengthen context that translates into better prepared, more confident hires that hit the ground running. This content also alleviates the need for academic training programs to provide this content and this can also be used to satisfy ACGME requirements.
This multi-part curriculum will have a new module launching monthly from November 2020 through June 2021. At the completion of each module, participants will be able to receive a certificate.
This video is part of Module 2, “Practice Governance and Structure.” The other videos in Module 2 are:
- Academic Practice – Governance, Structure, & Compensation (36 minutes)
- Governance and Compensation Models (21 minutes)
