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.
