CME on Your Terms – The Osler Institute utilized state-of-the-art equipment to record our Live Virtual Webinar July 2023 comprehensive Surgery Review Course and bring it to you!  These Video files are stored “in the cloud,” so you can stream them anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection and watch or listen to them on your phone, computer, or tablet.  As a result, the learning experience is almost like being at a live activity without travel costs and time away from your practice.  In addition, each online review is a downloadable copy of the syllabus that corresponds to the Video lectures for your use while viewing or as a free-standing study or clinical practice guide.

This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge base and help you pass your General Surgery ABS Qualifying exam and Continuous Certification (CC).  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 Qualifying exam and a thorough general surgery review for physicians in practice.  In addition, many previous learners have found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and planning strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical approaches for the principal areas covered by general surgeons, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for self-study.
