(Now with optional MOC SA credits)

The General Surgery Written Review is a five-day seminar consisting of didactic lectures (with searchable e-syllabus containing PDFs of all PowerPoint presentations), Questions and Answers time at the end of each topic, and dedicated Question and Answer sessions at the end of the day.  This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge-base as well as to help you pass your General Surgery exams.  Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating current best practice concepts, surgical approaches, and clinical follow-up strategies.  As a result, it provides a good review for your ABS written exams as well as providing a thorough general surgery review for physicians in practice.  Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and planning strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical approaches for the principle areas covered by general surgeons, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for self-study.

Osler Institute will provide our attendees with the latest technology to assist in their review. Each registrant will receive a link to the course e-syllabus upon arrival at the course. The e-syllabus contains PDF copies of all of the presentations offered during the review and is searchable. A printed syllabus can be preordered for a small additional fee.
