For new program directors, associate program directors, osteopathic program directors, general faculty, and anyone interested in or involved with resident education, this course provides education to satisfy fundamental faculty development needs.

The course runs on a three-year cycle, designed to follow the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) competency template of Knowledge, Skills, and Behaviors. This year’s course will focus on behaviors.
