Diane Evans, DO, MS, FACOOG, FACOG ABC providing one on one mock orals in Dallas.
December ABOG oral exam candidates have now received their exact exam day and time. ABC is scheduling a limited number of Do or Die in Dallas sessions. These private mock orals can be on your case list or structured case portion of the test. Each one-on-one 55 minute sessions are available on a first-come first served basis. Contact Angela Hare in our office for more information.
Make sure you know ALL the categories on each summary sheet, not simply the ones you have applied. This is especially applicable to the office case list, where you may have strategically dodged those dreadful primary care categories. EVERY SINGLE category is fair game on the test. Our Oral Exam FAQscan spoon feed you questions similar to those most frequently asked in each category.

Thanksgiving Facts Which President made it a national holiday?
Early on, Thanksgiving started out as days of prayer among the Pilgrims. Then in 1621, the fall harvest bounty that the Pilgrims reaped was shared with the Wampanoag Indians. This established the yearly celebration. In 1863, Sarah Josepha Hale wrote to President Lincoln asking him to recognize Thanksgiving as a US holiday.
