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.
The application for the 2021-2022 Visiting Scholars has closed. Information about the 2022-2023 Visiting Scholars will be posted in early 2022.
In the video below, former Visiting Scholar Dr. Sandeep Mannava discusses the program. Dr. Mannava also speaks about the program on the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery Podcast.
