The Osler Institute

Excellence in Continuing Medical Education


“…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.

This comprehensive review is designed to help you pass your ABP exams (both initial certification and MOC) as well as to update your clinical knowledge-base.  Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating new concepts, strategies, and treatments.  The six-day didactic course includes lectures that review the entire field of Pediatrics.  The course is run in a rapid-fire format to target a larger percentage of board and practice relevant information with Question and Answer examples embedded into each lecture.  In addition to the lectures, the course includes a searchable e-syllabus (containing PDFs of all PowerPoint presentations).  The dynamic, interactive lectures are supplemented with easy to follow outlines containing a broad range of information commonly found in standardized board examinations as well as practical guidelines for clinical practice.  A clinical picture quiz is available for review and discussion throughout the course.  Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and testing strategies, a better understanding of all major disease entities relevant to general practice of Pediatrics, and helped them recognize specific areas of knowledge weakness for self-study.

Pediatric Recall

Pediatrics Recall, Fourth Edition reviews disease entities to facilitate retention and mimic verbal testing covered in a pediatric clerkship.
Its unique question-and-answer format is retained. Organized by disease process and involved systems, the text includes descriptions, signs, symptoms, pathophysiology essentials, treatments, and possible outcomes.
Topics include basic issues in neonatal and pediatric fluid management, blood products, nutrition, growth, emergencies, and intensive care. One chapter is solely devoted to issues relating to the adolescent patient.
