Podcasts - MSK Cornerstone Course

The MSK Cornerstone Course was created to provide an in depth, structured, and convenient learning tool for orthopedic surgeons and musculoskeletal medicine providers.  This audio lecture course is broad in scope, teaching the fundamentals and concepts that drive the practice of orthopedics, while emphasis is also placed on the frequently tested material found on orthopedic surgery qualification examinations.  This is not “teaching the test”, this is teaching the fundamentals of orthopedics….. with testable material highlighted.  Course material covers topics found on:

  • The Orthopedic In-Training Exam
  • The ABOS Part 1 Examination
  • The AOBOS Part 1 Examination
  • The Maintenance of Certification Examination
  • The FRCS Trauma and Orthopeadics Exam
  • The EBOT Qualification Exam

The MSK Cornerstone Course itself is divided into 9 subspecialty topics, each focusing on a different facet of orthopedic surgery.  Great care has been taken to not only focus on the subspecialty topic of concern during each lecture, but also to interweave concepts from each specialty throughout the course to allow for repetition, greater retention, and a better understanding of how certain principles apply to the field of orthopedics as a whole.
