Fundamental Surgery Achieves CME Accreditation From the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons for VR Total Knee Arthroplasty Simulation

PR Newswire (12/19/19)

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has awarded Fundamental Surgery's Total Knee Arthroplasty simulation continuing medical education (CME) accreditation, enabling orthopaedic surgeons to collect CME credits while using the haptic virtual reality platform. The tool allows Fundamental Surgery to score a surgeon's skills by assessing "hands on" knowledge on correct angles, depths, and attention to the surgical site. This scoring technique is cross-referenced with AAOS' competency mandates, and once completing and passing the procedure, a trainee can receive three CME credits. "We're truly delighted to have been awarded accreditation and will continue to work with the AAOS on our library of orthopaedic simulations, ensuring they meet the stringent educational quality criteria, and allowing us to offer training that is valuable for trainees as well as attending surgeons," said Fundamental VR Chief Learning Officer Peter Rainger.
