Clinical Performance and Oral Examinations in Surgery

Oral Board Review Courses

May 10-15, 2013
Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, Amelia Island, Florida

September 8-13, 2013
Stowe, Vermont

This very small, interactive course is the oldest existing review course in the United States. It was designed to enhance the testing skills of surgeons preparing to take the Certifying Examination of the American Board of Surgery and impart effective communication skills to young surgeons. Course outcomes reported in the American Journal of Surgery (2002) and the Journal of Surgical Education (2012) stress a 97% success rate when course plans are followed.

The course features topic questions and provides individual feedback following one-on-one testing in the hotel environment, unlike any other review course.

There are limited spaces for residents whom program directors believe would benefit from this type of training early in their careers. Reduced tuition for residents.
