Case Competencies in Orthopaedic Surgery is a centralized, easy-access guide to preparing for cases most commonly encountered during training. Written by expert author teams consisting of both attending surgeons and residents, it follows a technique-based format and design that summarizes the surgical steps, from room set-up to closure, of all cases relevant to the 15 categories of "Orthopaedic Surgery Case Minimums" as determined by the ACGME.

"I am very impressed by this innovative approach to the core competencies. It is efficient, high quality way to address core competencies that every resident needs to know and that every residency program is required to teach. I am confident that residents will love the efficient presentations that they can review before starting a new case. In fact, this should be outside the OR. Orthopedic programs should consider purchasing one for each of its residents to assure they are achieving a standardized education in the core competencies of orthopedic surgery."
