Basics of Ortho-5.png

WELCOME to Basics of Ortho, where it's just the basics! An online community and informational website for the new physician assistant or nurse practitioner in orthopaedics, student, athletic trainer, physical therapist, and non-orthopaedic provider, in hopes of sharing knowledge and experience, that will lead to an affinity for orthopaedic clinical medicine, a desire to learn more, and build confidence as a clinician and diagnostician.

This website is not only a valuable resource to students and novice practitioners but also an excellent reference for experienced clinicians.

I've spent some time on the website and I think it's going to be great to help me review for my upcoming ortho exam!  It's very easy to read and navigate.

James H, MD,  Orthopaedic Surgeon (Retired)

I like what you're doing.  Good service you're offering.
