Good Luck Written Exam Candidates!

Finish your Case List

It's your number ONE & ONLY priority


Ideally, try to revise your list twice, as the first draft is never satisfactory. Dr. Das' book, Pass Your Oral OB/GYN Board Exam is a great step-by-step guide. Stand back and examine your list as if you were the examiner and not the candidate. What kind of questions would you ask? We are now accepting case lists for review by our ABC faculty. Please contact Melissa Krauss for more information.

Calm your mind even in the midst of preparing for your upcoming exam

From Healthy Women Website

Studying for your Written, Oral, MOC or OCC exam is often a stressful time in life. Studies show that implementing a regular meditation can increase gray matter and volume in parts of your brain. The result is more cognition, memory, perspective and less stress. Recognizing that physicians have a limited amount of free time each day these three simple methods can have positive results.

  1. At bedtime try Yogic sleep or Yoga Nidra - there are free audio apps that you can play as you prepare for sleep.
  2. Walking Meditation - be present by noticing different areas in your body from your toes to the top of your head. This practice can help clear your mind and stay mindful in the moment.
  3. Colorful coloring - its not just for children. Grad your colored pencils & pay attention to your breath. Combining the two can have a calming effect.
