Ophthalmology

“…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 written qualifying exam and to update your clinical knowledge base; it is especially useful to Ophthalmology residents taking their written qualifying exam as well as practicing physicians preparing to take the cognitive MOC exam.  This 6-day seminar course includes didactic lectures, e-syllabus (containing all PowerPoint® presentations), and designated Q&A sessions. Emphasis is on evidence-based practice and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating new concepts and testing strategies including an extensive review of optics and refraction, ophthalmic imaging, and newer approaches to ophthalmic surgery.  Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and evaluation skills and helped them recognize specific areas of weakness for further self-study.
The Osler Institute is going green and providing our attendees with the latest technology to assist in their review. Each registrant will receive upon arrival at the course, a USB drive with searchable PDF copies of the presentations offered during the review. A printed syllabus can be preordered for a small additional fee.
