6-day Review Course for ABOG Oral Exam Candidates

Our review course is filled with focused didactic sessions on OB, REI, Primary Care, Oncology, GYN/Office & FPM.  Afternoon small groups will use an oral exam format to implement and integrate the topics reviewed in the morning session. The faculty facilitated structured cases and sessions on application to your case list will provide opportunities for you to verbalize the answers as you would in the actual exam.  Taking a different exam?  Our 5-day course is applicable for you too!
