For MFM, FPMRS & REI 2020 oral exam candidates
This is the last month for case collection. You can do it!! Get those categories filled in, and start circulating your list to mentors and colleagues for their input. We are happy to offer a Comprehensive Case List Review. ABC is the only company in the nation where you receive a call from your reviewer to point out the highlights and also give you an opportunity to ask questions. That way you have plenty of time to edit the list before the February 3rd due date. For those planning on taking the exam in 2021, case list collection starts for you in January 2020, so now is a good time to familiarize yourself with the categories and structure of the list so you can hit the ground running. The big day in Dallas is 4 months away. Do you have a study schedule yet?
As you start organizing your study time, consider using the case list topics as an outline for your studying. Organizing into discrete topics is a great way to minimize an overwhelming task in many cases. There have been quite a few recent Urogynecology updates on ACOG and the MOC articles are also good for brushing up on current interest subjects.
For those that attended our live 3-Day review course in Charlotte, NC, you should have your binder to review those high yield topics that we covered. Continue using those as important study resource.
For those that could not make the Live Course, all hope is not lost, You still have the opportunity to join us for our Webinar series that will cover high wield topics in a structured case interactive format which you can join in on from the comfort of your home and get the opportunity to get on the hot seat to practice.
Register for our 2020 FPMRS webinar.
The AUGS website has some nice refresher lectures on statistics and topics that many people struggle with such as neurourology and embryology.
As you start organizing your study time, consider using the case list topics as an outline for your studying. Organizing into discrete topics is a great way to minimize an overwhelming task in many cases. Is there a textbook you like that will be a good resource for maternal medical complications? What about fetal complications? Would the ACOG practice bulletins or committee opinions be a helpful resource for some of these topics? The SMFM Fellow lecture series or Expert Series of documents? Once you have a list of resources, you can start thinking about how you want to divide your time between all of these to round out your review of the important topics in MFM. “Read everything” isn’t an achievable goal, but a concrete list of chapters and other sources is something you can divide over the coming months and tackle one step at a time. You’ve got this!
