The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) has partnered with The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) on its Visiting Scholars Program. Junior faculty, residents/fellows, individuals holding advanced degrees in public health, health services research, and other relevant disciplines apply to participate in this exciting and dynamic, one-year, part-time program facilitating research projects related to Board Certification and Maintenance of Certification. In addition to the research project, scholars are exposed to the fields of professional assessment and education, health policy, and quality improvement and are offered the opportunity to develop leadership skills critical to their own professional growth and success.
More information about the program can be visiting the ABMS. The deadline for 2019-2020 is May 1, 2019. Information on the 2019 application process will be posted here in early 2019.
