ASES News – September 2020
We are in the home stretch for the 2020 Annual (1st ever virtual) ASES Meeting. Charley Jobin and Leesa Galatz have put together a phenomenal program with 8 symposia, 8 best paper presentations, 6 live ICLs, guest speaker presentations from General Stan McChrystal, Dr. Louis Bigliani, and Dr. Jin-Young Park. There will also be 5 virtual industry workshops, 6 re-live surgeries, 11 virtual company exhibits, 30 narrated abstract presentations, 6 pre-recorded ICLs, and over 50 ePoster presentations! Say that 10 times fast I dare you. If you have not yet registered, please do so – one advantage of our virtual meeting is not having to worry about air travel and hotels but you still need to register. You can do so here.
Hope to “see” you October 2-3 for the Annual meeting and February 27, 2021 for the ASES Specialty Day co-chaired by Chris Ahmad and Charley Getz.
All the best –

Neer Circle Virtual Academic Symposium
Saturday, October 10, 10:00am – 1:00pm EDT
Open to all ASES members
Based on the overwhelming success of our recent ASES Fellows’ Core Curriculum, ASES Education Co-Chairs Gus Mazzocca and Ranjan Gupta, in conjunction with Joaquin Sanchez-Sotelo, have created a novel 8-week “Introduction to Shoulder/Elbow fellowship” Core Curriculum to which we would like to invite your new fellows to participate.
We have selected the same time – 9:00pmEST on the Zoom platform. The topics and faculty have already been confirmed and we hope that you agree that this will be a terrific way to show our fellows that collectively ASES is committed to their education, well-being, and ultimate success.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments – all the best and look forward to seeing your fellows on Thursday nights!
ASES 2021 Exchange Fellowship Program
Applications for the 2021 Exchange Fellowship Program are now being accepted!
The four-week European exchange fellowship will begin in the fall of 2021. Applicants must be no more than 10 years out of their fellowship as of December 31, 2020, practicing in the United States or Canada, board eligible or certified orthopaedic surgeons with a special interest and experience in shoulder and elbow research and patient care.
The Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery (JSES) and the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) are proud to announce a new award, the Neviaser Award. The award is named in honor of Dr. Robert Neviaser, long-time Editor-in-Chief (1996-2008) of JSES, but also honors his family, who have been prominent in ASES. Dr. Neviaser was also ASES President in 1992-93. His father, Julius Neviaser, was one of the original pioneering shoulder surgeons, and is an honorary member of ASES. Bob’s brother, Tom Neviaser, has been an ASES Member, and his son, Andy Neviaser, is an ASES Member.

2020 ABOS WLA
Knowledge Sources Posted
The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) has posted 152 Knowledge Sources for this year’s ABOS Web-Based Longitudinal Assessment Program (ABOS WLA). This includes 101 new Knowledge Sources and 51 Knowledge Sources carried over from last year. The Knowledge Sources have been chosen by groups of practicing orthopaedic surgeons representing General Orthopaedics and each Orthopaedic Subspecialty.
The 2020 ABOS WLA Assessment Window will be open April 13-May 18. Participating ABOS Diplomates will be able to answer the 30 questions pertaining to their 15 chosen Knowledge sources during the time period. Besides making a few technical tweaks, the biggest difference for 2020 is that Diplomates will know in advance from which Knowledge Source each question will come. They will still need to choose Knowledge Sources prior to answering the first question, but by knowing which Knowledge Source the next question will be coming from, Diplomates will be able to focus their time in reviewing the Knowledge Sources.
More information on the ABOS WLA Program, including participation eligibility and Passing Standards can be found here: https://www.abos.org/moc/abos-web-based-longitudinal-assessment-abos-wla/. The participation criteria are specific based on a Diplomate’s ABOS Certification Expiration date. Please do not hesitate to call the ABOS office with questions about the new ABOS WLA program.
