Self Assessment Exam Committee

Plans, develops, and evaluates the yearly AOSSM Self-Assessment Examination (SAE). This committee is involved with pilot testing the Self Assessment, and analyzing data related to question content and participant data. Based on the AOSSM Educational Curriculum, the Self Assessment is recognized by The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) SAE credit. The exam is designed to help learners identify their own strengths and weaknesses in the clinical and practice management areas of orthopaedic sports medicine. Committee members must understand the AOSSM curriculum and the requirements for the ABOS Subspecialty Certification in Sports Medicine. Committee members are asked to be a reviewer or writer each year (although this may vary; first year members typically attend a weekend reviewers/editing meeting in Spring and then become a writer of 10-15 questions per year in subsequent years).
