Case List Tip

For subspecialists preparing for their general boards

If you have not already done so, absolutely prioritize entering your off-specialty and office list. These will require more thought since they are out of your comfort zone. Don't go nuts on your specialty case list - remember you're sitting for your general boards. Also, don't think your specialty will be obvious and somehow cut you some slack. The examiners receive only their section. So for example, if you're a GYN ONC, your OB examiners receive only your OB case list, so your list won't be flashing neon lights announcing that you're and oncologist. Assume nothing and prepare for everything.
