The prestigious preparatory event brings together the top leaders in orthopaedics
June 13, 2023 [Needham, MA] – The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc. (JBJS) and Professional Medical Education Ltd. are pleased to announce the rebranding of the Oxford Comprehensive Orthopaedic Review Course as Miller’s Orthopaedic Review Course (MRC), Oxford. Now in its 14th year, the course will take place January 3-7, 2024, at Worcester College on the historic campus of the University of Oxford.
MRC Oxford offers a four-day preparatory experience, with an additional full-day module that includes practice oral and clinical examinations. This comprehensive, exam-focused course brings together a prestigious faculty of key opinion leaders who have been selected for their extensive teaching experience and excellent communication skills.
“This Oxford-based course will have its strongest-ever faculty,” says MRC Oxford professor Dr. Tom Cosker. “With contributions from over 40 well renowned surgeons from across the U.K., as well as some from the U.S. course, this year promises to be the best yet.”
Founded by Dr. Mark Miller nearly 30 years ago, MRC is noted for its high-quality educational instruction that centers on essential material for American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons (ABOS) certification. With this agreement, JBJS and MRC are proud to bring their expertise to those preparing for the FRCS (TR & Orth) examination.
MRC represents “the gold standard in orthopaedic review courses,” according to MRC Part I director Dr. James Browne. “We are very excited about collaborating with the highly successful Oxford group and bringing them into the MRC family.”

About Miller’s Orthopaedic Review Courses
Miller’s Orthopaedic Review Courses offer an unmatched review of orthopaedics facilitated by experienced, dedicated faculty. During his own Board preparation many years ago, Dr. Mark Miller realized that there were very few textbooks or courses that offered concise and thorough reviews of orthopaedic topics. This was the genesis of the Miller’s Review of Orthopaedics, a best seller. Dr. Miller subsequently created Miller’s Orthopaedic Review Courses, which is now in its twenty-eighth year. Miller’s Orthopaedic Review Courses are owned and operated by The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc.
