All-new for 2014! Spend three days with ASPS studying for the oral and written exams given by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc.® (ABPS). Our 2014 program is completely re-engineered giving you more options during the event and more opportunities for mock oral exams and case analysis. And for the first time, the syllabus is completely digital—thanks to PSEN.
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.
