ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which examines the level of evidence that supports the credited answers of clinical management questions on the Orthopaedic In-Training Examination (OITE). The study reviews the OITE examinations and evaluates the level of evidence of studies to test the hypothesis that orthopaedic surgery residents are tested on treatment principles by low levels of evidence. Results show that more than two-thirds of questions were supported by studies with low levels of evidence.
