Virtual Bootcamp

In this section, we present a modular course ("Virtual Bootcamp") for PGY-1 basic skills training designed to facilitate asynchronous learning. These changes were motivated to comply with social distancing requirements due to COVID-19. The subject matter is based on the ABOS Modules for PGY-1 residents.

Key differences include:

  1. Lectures presented using videoconferencing and recorded to allow for asynchronous learning based on learner schedules (variable due to redeployment or service obligations)
    • Inclusion of teaching videos from AAOS OVT/VuMedi/YouTube to facilitate "flipped" classroom learning
    • Problem-based learning
  2. Take Home Kits for Skills Training
    • Weekly kits for skills modules
      • Based on ABOS guidelines
      • Based on published validated skills tasks or techniques
