Miller Review Course II


An intensive, one-day course designed to prepare attendees for the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons Examination Part II Oral Case Examination carefully crafted by the expert team of Miller Review Course faculty and staff.


WHAT You'll Do

  • Participate in three mock oral exams and present three of your own cases

  • Observe case presentations from a small group of colleagues

  • Obtain detailed feedback from two mock examiners designed to improve each presentation while meeting the standards of the ABOS scorecard

  • Attend a seminar on how to effectively communicate with examiners, answer difficult questions, and handle case complications

  • Attend one of 7 lectures focused on sub-specialty updates and advances from recent literature and key papers

  • The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc. designates this course for a maximum of 9.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should

    claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Specialty Focus for 2019 Miller Review Part II (subject to availability)

“Registration” is currently open ONLY in the following areas.

  • Pediatrics

  • Trauma

  • Foot/Ankle

The ability to audit is also still open as well.


Back by Popular Demand in 2019:  In response to feedback from previous participants, the 2018 Part II Course will include a limited number of seats available for practicing surgeons planning to take the Oral Boards after 2019. The audit/observation experience is designed to help you understand the key points of how to select patients for surgery during your collection period, how to appropriately document patient notes, and how to deal with complications as they occur. You will participate in morning lectures and have the opportunity to observe colleagues in the mock exam setting. This is an excellent opportunity to be proactive regarding your collection period. Register using the “Option to Audit” on the registration menu.

I think the faculty feedback in today’s presentations was invaluable to prepare me for Part II, as well as influencing my practice and efforts to become a better surgeon. This was a humbling experience but I think the educational value overshadows everything else. Thank you once again. — A 2018 Participant
