Case List Study Tip 

Another sure fire way to learn your cases, as well as have some fun coloring, is to get out your four favorite colored highlighters. Use the same color for ALL the cases with the following commonalities: labs, imaging, medications, and surgeries. For example, everything highlighted in blue are medications. Each area has characteristic features. In this example, for each medication identify the generic/brand name, mechanism of action, indications, etc. Enter the data on a flashcard or in your phone and quiz yourself in between cases or awaiting a delivery.

Study Tip for Written Exam

The CREOG exam is in three months, of which two are holiday months. Time will slip away quickly. If your residency does not have a regimented CREOG prep course, you need to develop a study schedule now. Kill two birds with one stone by using the ABOG written board learning objectives as your guide. Simply go to the General OB/GYN Bulletin on your home page.
Anyone can take the exam, even non-residents, so we strongly recommend them if you had failed your written board exam.  Just contact Darya Valantsevich at You must register by November, 2015.
