Vascular Surgery

“…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 Oral
Osler Participants 91% 96%
Candidates without an Osler review 68% 72%

“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.

This 2-day course is similar to our general surgery oral board course taken by about half of surgery candidates. This mock orals course will start with a lecture on best techniques for passing your oral boards. The course will give you ample opportunity to do and observe mock oral examinations.
During half-hour mock orals faculty will ask questions about vascular surgery case management – like on the real oral board exam – but followed with a critique.
Your registration includes doing a public mock oral. In addition you may purchase extra public or private mock oral exams. Availability will be limited within two weeks of the course
