Ophthalmology Mock Oral Board Examination

Preparation Course

The University of Colorado Department of Ophthalmology is offering its first annual mock oral board examination preparation course for Ophthalmology. This is the first and only full-length, mock oral board examination in the country and is designed to replicate every aspect of the actual oral exam.

Date:          Saturday, June 3, 2017
Time:          7am-12pm or 12pm-5pm
Location:    UCHealth Eye Center, 1675 Aurora Ct, Aurora, CO
Cost:          $100

Registration Form

The purpose of the course is to improve examinees readiness for the oral board examination through a live oral exam that closely simulates the format, content, and timing of the actual examination. In simulated exam rooms, attendees will complete six 30 minute, face-to-face encounters with examiners, presenting up to ten clinical cases and describing 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.
