General 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.

“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 General Surgery Written Review is a five-day seminar consisting of didactic lectures (with searchable e-syllabus containing PDFs of all PowerPoint presentations), Questions and Answers time at the end of each topic, and dedicated Question and Answer sessions at the end of the day.  This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge-base as well as to help you pass your General Surgery exams.  Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating current best practice concepts, surgical approaches, and clinical follow-up strategies.  As a result, it provides a good review for your ABS written exams as well as providing a thorough general surgery review for physicians in practice.  Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and planning strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical approaches for the principle areas covered by general surgeons, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for self-study.

(Now with optional MOC SA credits) Osler Institute will provide our attendees with the latest technology to assist in their review. Each registrant will receive a link to the course e-syllabus upon arrival at the course. The e-syllabus contains PDF copies of all of the presentations offered during the review and is searchable. A printed syllabus can be preordered for a small additional fee.
