Hone your critical reasoning and communication skills in an intensive 3-day mock oral 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 plastic surgery. It is also an opportunity to review and revise your casebooks. Participants and faculty review face-to-face in a 25-minute simulation of the oral board process followed by faculty critique and audience response; 2-4 cases are reviewed in each 30-minute session. Participants will observe a total of 40 to 80 cases per day. Reviews are followed by questions regarding data gathering and image interpretation, diagnosis, treatment, technical aspects, and outcome. Participants learn by doing and by observing other participants’ exams. In private mock oral sessions, participants can choose to review their own casebooks or unknown cases presented by the examiner.
Course fees include you doing two half-hours, public mock oral exams, and one half-hour, private mock oral exam to review your casebooks. Participants may purchase additional public or private mock oral sessions; however, faculty availability may be limited within two weeks of the course. Please contact the Osler office prior to that time to ensure availability.
