• The Copernicus Project

    Dr. Joseph Tauro lectured at the 2014 Orthopedic Summit in Las VegasBy Dr. Joseph Tauro, MD. Follow on Twitter.

    This month I flew to the new learning center for the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) in Chicago where I am working to improve advanced arthroscopic surgical training.

    The Copernicus Project, named for the mathematician and astronomer who modeled the universe, will raise the standard for teaching advanced orthopedic surgery. The project, which is entering its fifth year, will establish a proficiency-based model of criteria for doctors to achieve before receiving advanced course certifications.

    I am honored to join a team of world-renowned orthopedic surgeons to devise a model of criteria that will differentiate between a novice and expert orthopedic surgeon, as well as establishing inter-related reliability for evaluators.

    Proficiency based training has proven to be more effective in helping surgeons master new techniques. We hope to gradually institute this type of training for many procedures in the future.

    Dr. Tauro has traveled extensively both nationally and internationally to teach advanced surgical techniques to other doctors. He is a member of the Learning Center Committee, and chairs the Technology Committee at AANA, a national organization for the advancement of orthopedic surgery in the United States. Dr. Tauro is in private practice in Toms River, and is an Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Rutgers Medical School.
