Oral Exam Tip
Oral Exam Strategy   

Just remember 70%. That’s all you need to pass the exam.  You do not need, nor will you likely get, 100% of the questions correct. The questions will come at you in rapid fire succession. Often times the examiner will push you until you finally don’t know the answer. Don’t misinterpret this as failing the question. On the contrary, you probably passed it long before, but the examiner may simply want to explore the depth of your knowledge or at least reassure himself that you will acknowledge your limitations.

Case List Tip 
For FPMRS subspecialists

Here are some tips for creating an easy to navigate case list for you and the examiners.

1. Be consistent: if you list that you did a midurethral sling, specify that for every case that you did.  Adding detail such as the type of sling is fine if you are comfortable defending your choice in a clinical way, but if defending sling type is anxiety provoking, it is best to leave the details off.

2. Be organized: the guidelines for case list creation are quite vague for FPMRS and this can be nerve racking.  Organize your surgical cases by chief complaint categories: prolapse, incontinence, pain, other topics. Be consistent in your descriptions of chief complaint, therapy initiated, and outcomes.  For office cases, organize them by category as well and ensure that you are able to defend things that may not be exactly by the book.
