The course attempts to improve examinees readiness for the oral board examination through a live oral exam that closely simulates the format, content, and timing o​f the actual examination. In simulated exam rooms, attendees will complete six 30 minute, face-to-face encounters with examiners who present up to ten clinical cases and describe how they would care for that patient. Upon completion of the mock exam, attendees will have the opportunity to review their performance with examiners and receive feedback on ways to improve exam techniques.
