For 2020 FPMRS ORAL Exam Candidates
ABC FPMRS Webinar, Thesis Reviews, Case List Reviews, and Mock Orals to begin this fall! Starting in October, potential Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery oral board candidates can get the guidance they need through online webinar sessions with structured cases, have a fresh set of eyes review their thesis and case list materials, and also have a phone or in-person mock oral exams.
Case List Tip:
You have time to compile, but it is always a good idea to get your master list of surgical and non-surgical cases pulled. If you have a helpful administrative liaison in the finance department, they can run a report with patient names and the ICD 10 bb codes, which will give you a great organized start to compiling your list. Additionally, you can use that list of diagnoses to identify cases for your office categories very quickly. The ABC FPMRS Live Course Scheduled for Nov 22-24, 2019. We will also have some great sessions that will discuss templates and tips for creating a list that is in line with ABOG standards, so you won’t have to experience the anxiety-provoking process of submitting a sub-optimal list.
The case list isn’t due until February 3, 2020, but this is also a good time to make sure you are entering the data and checking to make sure you have patients that represent all of the different categories you need to fill for the case list. If you find that you are missing some patient experience types, now is the time to find ways to get more clinical exposure so you can be sure to get those last rare conditions covered.
For ABOG 2020 MFM ORAL Exam Candidates
Take a deep breath - you’ve made it past the first big hurdle and got your thesis submitted. Congratulations! Now it’s time to focus on finishing that case list and formulating a study plan. Speaking of that study plan… We’ve done all the hard work for you with our MFM Interactive Board Review Course, which will be held November 22-24. Dr. Stephanie Martin has created an innovative and integrated program to address those high yield weaknesses common to all. We cannot repeat a 3-year fellowship in 3 days, but we will help you master the topics that are key to success on the oral exam. Each day, we will tackle MFM topics such as critical care, maternal medical complications, genetics, and ultrasound, utilizing a structured case format similar to your oral board exam, but facilitated by the faculty. We will also cover Case List preparation, board exam tips, designing a study workshop and statistics. The format is carefully designed for the seasoned adult learner preparing for an oral exam and promises to be focused, productive, non-adversarial and fun.
The case list isn’t due for another 4 months, but this is also a good time to make sure you are entering the data and checking to make sure you have patients that represent all of the different categories you need to fill for the case list. If you find that you are missing some patient experience types, now is the time to find ways to get more clinical exposure so you can be sure to get those last rare conditions covered
