OKU 11 Study Flashcards – Available only from COA

COA is pleased to offer orthopaedic surgeons a new study tool to help you prepare for your Maintenance of Certification (MOC) or to pass your initial Boards.  These comprehensive flashcards, prepared by COA members, have been updated to cover all chapters in OKU-10.

The flashcards are based on information and illustrations contained in OKU-10. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has given COA permission to use this information, but the AAOS was not involved in the development of the flashcards; nor, do they endorse the software applications used to make the flashcards available. All orders for the flashcards, must be ordered through COA.
