“…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.”

Pass your oral qualifying exam by honing your critical reasoning and evaluation skills in an intensive 3-day case review course designed to help you zero in on what is most clinically relevant for diagnosis, developing a management plan, and surgical approach, if required, in all pertinent areas of otolaryngology. This course is given in the exam city, immediately preceding the oral exams. The course begins with a lecture on critical reasoning skills that will be emphasized during the mock oral exams to follow. The remainder of the course consists of a series of board-relevant cases presented as half-hour public mock oral exams followed by faculty feedback. Participants and faculty review one-on-one in a 25-minute simulation of the oral board exam. You may request intermittent critiques or a straight exam followed by a critique. Course fees include participating in one public mock oral exam for each course day and observing others being examined. Participants may purchase additional mock orals if desired (public or private); however, availability may be limited within two weeks of the start of the course. Enter Mock Oral topic preference(s) in the indicated box when registering.
Mock Oral Exam Topics:
- General Otolaryngology
- Head and Neck Surgery
- Facial Plastic
- Reconstructive Surgery
