Two Clinical Performance and Oral Examinations in Surgery courses will take place on the East Coast in 2015, including Amelia Island, FL, May 7–12; and Stowe, VT, September 16–21. Register online now for 2015 courses at http://www.oralboardreview.net/.
The course provides an opportunity for surgeons who have not passed the certifying examination or senior residents/fellows who anticipate difficulty with the certifying examination to receive individual feedback on their oral examination skills and knowledge base. The expanded course will begin with an evening reception on the first day and allow for more individual assessment. All participants will be videotaped in a mock certifying examination on the fifth day of the course and participate in a debriefing session on the final day. Each debriefing will include a behavioral analysis, areas of content weakness, a plan, and questions for review along with a video of the participant’s mock exam.
