OrthoBC! Orthopedic Basic Competency for iOS

By Carlos Vaz Free

Developer's Description

Due to the current and projected burden of illness related to musculoskeletal conditions, all graduates from medical schools, first year residents and physiotherapists should demonstrate basic competency in musculoskeletal in musculoskeletal diagnosis and management(1).

To objectively quantify this competency, Freedman and Bernstein developed a standardized examination for assessing graduating medical students with regard to their knowledge of the musculoskeletal system(2), witch is the only validated examination in USA and it has been widely accepted as a cognitive measure of students knowledge by several reference medical schools, like University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Medical School.

Based in this validated examination, we created OrthoBC! (Basic Competency) app, aiming to aid medical school students, residents and physiotherapists to self evaluate their basic competency in musculoskeletal field.

The test consists in a 25-point examination addressing all topics of the Freedman and Bernstein examination. To be considered successful, you need to reach the recommended passing score of 70points.

Good luck!
