Case List Tip for FPM's

by Amos Adelowo, MD, FACOG

You will now need to use the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery case list form which you can access n your ABOG personal page. Your case list must be in the proper format and with the required number of cases. Note: Paper Case List is NOT acceptable. You've come to far to have this all go wrong just because of timing!

We have FPM Faculty on hand to review your case list.

Pondering making New Year's Resolutions?

During this time of New Year's resolutions, why not make gratitude and giving take the place of creating ambitious goals that usually don't last anyway. Consider the following:

Being grateful - For most of us, if we look around, we will see we have all we need and more. Writing down each day what you are grateful for is a great practice in seeing the many gifts we have in life. Even adversity and painful experiences can be powerful lessons in being thankful. This practice can be life changing - moving you from a life of complaining to a life of kindheartedness and appreciation.

Give to others - Your time, tithes and offerings go a long way toward paying bills and meeting the tangible needs of your community. Or give to an organization you believe in, especially those smaller organizations low on funding. Beside it promoting cooperation, trust, and social connection, giving has an even greater impact on ourselves. It has the potential to decrease stress, increase oxytocin and overall makes us happier people.

Written Exam Strategy

The significance of your CREOG score

ABOG no longer reports your objective score on the exam. So residents have no idea if they sailed through or missed passing by one point. So, unfortunately, now the only correlate is the CREOG in-service training exam. If you're a chief resident, you must use this as a gauge to predict board performance, so you must/should prepare for this. Anything less than a 200 score is cause for concern. We can help you create a study plan.
