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, surgical approach, and case management in all essential areas of Thoracic Surgery. The course covers standard of care relevant cases utilizing a half-hour public mock oral exam with feedback format. The course begins with a lecture on the critical reasoning and communication skills important to passing the Oral Certification exam and that will be emphasized during the mock oral exams to follow. Participants and faculty review one-on-one 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 for a total of 40-80 case reviews per day. Course fees include participating in one public mock oral exam and observing others being examined. Learn from doing and from observing. You may purchase as many additional private mock oral exams as you like; however, availability and topics may be limited within two weeks of the course. Please contact the Osler office prior to that time to ensure availability.
