Anesthesiology

“…I believe it is a ‘great course’”  *  “I feel [the course] helped me pass.”  *

The Osler Institute has over thirty years of experience in preparing physicians for their board examinations. We can help you today.
A survey of Osler participants shows significantly higher pass rates for Osler students compared with those who did not take our course.
The difference in pass rates is difficult to explain away by self-selection in attendance over-representing those who would have passed without taking the Osler course.

Exam pass % for: Written
Osler Participants 91%
Candidates without an Osler review 68%

“Osler gives … unfair advantage” said a Board Trustee. “He’s wrong and right,” reported an Osler participant who heard the trustee’s comment. “The course does give candidates an advantage – but it’s not unfair.” This student had failed his boards before taking the Osler course but told us that he passed easily after doing the course. “This time didn’t even feel like an exam. It was like having a discussion with a colleague.”

The Osler course can work for you too.

The ABA is transitioning to a new examination format and The Osler Institute has changed the content of the written review courses to meet your needs. For two years we will be offering multi-level review courses including: a 4-day Review for those taking the new Basic Assessment Exam and a concurrent 6-day Review for those taking the Traditional Part 1 Qualifying Exam. Both courses will cover board relevant topics specific to the new ABA exam requirements and will be didactic lecture style courses with searchable e-syllabi for use at course and at home. In addition, both will also include Q&A sessions plus board style pre- and post-tests to help with your preparation. For interested participants, we will also offer a limited number of mock oral exams which can be ordered by request prior to the start of the course.
