Hone your critical reasoning and evaluation skills in an intensive 3-day case review course designed to help you zero in on what is most clinically relevant for diagnosis, developing a management plan, and treatment approach. Emphasis is placed on the clinical management of malignant and benign disease by requiring knowledge of anatomy; epidemiology; pathology; patterns of local, regional and distal involvement; treatment modalities; radiation treatment planning; and results of treatment including prognosis and complications.
The course begins with a lecture on Critical Reasoning and Communication Skills that will be emphasized during the exams to follow. The remainder of the course consists of a series of board-relevant case reviews presented as half-hour public mock oral exams followed by faculty feedback. Participants and faculty review one-on-one in a 25-minute simulation of the oral board process followed by faculty critique; 2-4 cases are reviewed in each 30-minute session for a total of 120 case reviews. Course fees include participating in a complimentary public mock oral exam and observing other participants being examined – learn from doing and from observing.
Participants are matched with faculty based on their topic selections. Participants may purchase additional private mock orals if desired; availability may be limited within three weeks of the start of the course.
