Designation: The Osler Institute designates this Other activity (real-time virtual one-on-one interaction with Faculty) for a maximum of 30 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with their participation in the activity.
Hone your critical reasoning and evaluation skills in an intensive case review course designed to help you zero in on what is most clinically relevant for diagnosis, treatment approach, and patient management in all essential areas of Ophthalmology. The course opens with a lecture presentation on the critical reasoning and communication skills necessary to pass the Oral Certification exam, which will be emphasized in the recorded mock orals available for viewing. The recorded mock orals cover standard of care relevant cases utilizing a half-hour mock oral exam with feedback format. In addition, participant volunteers and some of our best Faculty were recorded in 25-minute virtual simulations of the Oral Board process, followed by faculty critique. In addition, an Optic Pearls lecture distills the essential aspects of Optics for the certification exam and your medical practice, plus a lecture on Covid-19 protection specifically for Ophthalmologists.
Course fees include participating in 2 private virtual mock orals scheduled during the three days encompassing the course. Participants may purchase additional mock orals if desired; however, topic availability may be limited near the start of the course.
