ABC can review your case list
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. Keep in mind that no case lists will be accepted after July 28th for August 2nd submission and August 12th for August 17th Submission. 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, or MOC exam is often a stressful time in life. Studies show that implementing 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.
- At bedtime try Yogic sleep or Yoga Nidra - there are free audio apps that you can play as you prepare for sleep.
- 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 of the moment.
- Colorful coloring - it's not just for children. Grab your colored pencils & pay attention to your breath. Combining the two can have a calming effect.

Are you preparing to take your Oral Exam in 2023?
Dr. Das' fast-track advice
If you are fast tracking for the 2023 oral exam, you will typically begin collecting your cases in July. Even though you cannot typically apply for the exam until February 2023, if you wait that long to start collecting your cases, you're already behind - BIG MISTAKE!
