The Orthopaedic Training Study, Phase II 1968-1972. Final Report, Volume I.
Olson, Carl J.; And Others
Phase two of the Orthopaedic Training Study was designed to examine time, sequence, and content requirements of existing orthopaedic programs. Specifically, the proposal was designed to achieve the following objectives: (1) to provide a model of individualized graduate education in medicine in which the demonstration of individual competence marks the end of formal training; (2) to document the nature and variation of orthopaedic training in the U.S.; (3) to devise and test methods for increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of orthopaedic training; (4) to determine the relationships between input training and output variables; (5) to develop mechanisms that will facilitate continuing institutional self-study of training programs; and (6) to develop a pool of educational specialists in orthopaedics who can provide continuing leadership in the field. This document presents a report of the results of the study with remarks about implications for further study and development of programs. See also HE 003 277 and HE 003 275. (HS)
