The Oral and Written Board Preparation Course is interactive and comprehensive, using more than 100 plastic surgery cases to provide a thorough overview of plastic surgery principles and management problems. Case scenarios will be presented providing a broad review of pertinent topics in clinical plastic surgery. The course will include topic modules in the areas of breast/aesthetic, hand/complex wounds/burns/scars, craniofacial/head and neck, and CPT coding.
Patient safety issues will be emphasized in each presentation. Specifically, avoidance and management of complications as well as general principles involved in assuring patient safety will be addressed.
The course also provides exposure to the format of the oral and written boards and participants will have the opportunity to practice answering questions under pressure. Dual concurrent sessions will address topics specific to oral board preparation and written board preparation.
Some of the unique advantages of this course over other study programs include: dual concurrent tracks for customized learning allowing focus on either the oral or written exams as appropriate; practice sessions that allow ample time to get the feel of answering questions while faculty provide immediate feedback; and one-on-one discussion with faculty who will offer guidance on preparation of your oral board case books.
This course is appropriate for surgeons seeking a review of clinical science and patient safety issues. It is useful for those preparing to take the oral and written ABPS examinations and serves as an educational resource for MOC efforts.
We look forward to helping you prepare for the exams! View the 2013 brochure!
