We’ve recorded one-on-one sessions with our best Faculty on every topic we usually cover in the public rooms at our live reviews to bring them to you. This course will help you improve your critical reasoning, evaluation, and communication skills in an intensive case review course designed to help you zero in on what is most clinically relevant for diagnosis, surgical approach, and case management in all essential areas of general surgery. The course covers standard care-relevant cases utilizing a mock oral exam format. In addition, we’ve recorded virtual one-on-one mock oral sessions between individual volunteers and our best Faculty, covering all required topic areas to bring them to you. When you register for our virtual simulated oral course, you receive access to stream the entire recorded course (31 hours) PLUS two complimentary virtual private mock orals. In addition, participants may purchase as many additional virtual private mock oral sessions as needed, although Faculty and topic availability may be limited over time.
