FREE Self Assessment Exam

Members can earn 10 CMEs toward their MOC Self Assessment requirements with a Self Assessment Exam developed by EOA's MOC Committee. The SAE is designed to help orthopaedists assess their knowledge in comparison with other orthopaedic surgeons, no matter how many years in practice or level of specialization. The results of the SAE should direct orthopaedic surgeons toward areas of study that will lead to professional improvement.

To receive 10 SAE credits, you must take and submit the scored & recorded exam. After submitting the exam online, you will receive feedback, the correct answers, commentary and references, as well as acknowledgement by email that you have completed the exam and your certificate.
