ABOG MFM 2021 ORAL Exam Candidates

Happy New Year, MFM oral exam candidates! It is 2021 and time to keep up the pace of your study plan. Your electronic case list is due to ABOG on February 1st - just as the Virtual SMFM Annual Meeting is wrapping up on January 30, 2021.  Many of you were postponed from the 2020 exam due to the pandemic - don’t let procrastination and fatigue get the best of you. Make one of your New Year’s resolutions a consistent plan for studying and reading to prepare for April. If you weren’t able to participate in the 2020 MFM review course in December, no problem! The MFM Review Course Recordings are available for purchase up until your 2021 exam. Our MFM FAQ Manual provides you with an interactive study tool to prepare for questions you may be asked during your MFM oral exam. 
Finally, our MFM Oral Exam Webinar starts in February, perfect timing to practice explaining concepts and reviewing cases with our faculty.  Each session will be case-heavy with plenty of opportunities to defend your own cases.  Don't be taken by surprise on your exam!  You’ve got this! 

FPMRS 2021 ORAL Exam Candidates

Happy New Year! We are kicking off the new year with our 12-session Oral Exam Webinar for FPMRS oral exam candidates.  The first session starts Sunday Feb. 28th with Dr. Adelowo reviewing POP structured cases on surgical materials and mesh complications.  Dr. Adelowo is the FPMRS Course director. Remember your case list is due to ABOG on February 1st. Case list submission has changed to an online electronic format. You will now need to use the Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery case list form which you can access on 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 too far to have this all go wrong just because of timing! We have FPM faculty on hand to review your case list.  They will review it with a keen eye and point out strengths and weaknesses like repetitive language, inconsistencies, or lack of detail that you may fail to recognize since you’re likely working on a document that has been revised multiple times by this point. You will then have the opportunity for a one-on-one phone consult to review the highlights. Don’t pass up on this opportunity. Having a well-constructed full proof case list is a critical part of your exam success. 

REI 2021 ORAL Exam Candidates

Happy New Year! It is time to get serious with your oral exam prep and finalize your case lists. 
If you were unable to attend the REI Oral Board Review Course earlier this month, the REI Review Course Recordings are available for purchase on our website.  They will be available for your review until the April 2021 REI certifying exam.  
We are kicking off the new year with our 12-session Oral Exam Webinar for REI oral exam candidates. The webinar series will begin early February and will provide a forum to practice articulating your responses with our faculty.  The format of the webinars will be primarily structured cases designed to simulate your actual oral exam.  You will have the opportunity to interact with the presenter live as you review the cases and provide your responses. 
Don't forget, case list submission deadline is February 1st.
You’ve got this!
