Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of 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 that are important to passing the Oral Certification exam and that will be emphasized in the recorded mock orals available for your viewing. The recorded mock orals cover standard of care relevant cases utilizing a half-hour mock oral exam with feedback format. Participant volunteers and some of our best faculty were recorded in 25-minute virtual simulations of the Oral Board process followed by faculty critique. The recorded material covers all required topic areas and will be available for your viewing beginning 5 days prior to the Osler review weekend through the board exam. In addition, there is an Optic Pearls lecture which distills the most important 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 3 days encompassing the course. Participants may purchase additional mock orals if desired; however, topic availability may be limited near the start of the course.
