MFM 2022 ORAL Exam CandidatesIt’s February! Take a deep breath – your list has been submitted. Excellent work! Now it’s time to really crack down and study. Do you have a study plan yet? Take the next two months to fill in any gaps in your knowledge and reinforce your strengths. Although your case list is a great source of topics to study from, and you should know the details about every diagnosis and treatment you have listed there, remember that there are several cases of the day that will be spanning all sorts of topics which may not show up on your list. Our structured cases (4 sets totaling 72 cases) run the gamut in MFM topics. In addition, our MFM Oral Exam Webinar starts January 31st and is perfectly timed for your April exam! Dr. Stephanie Martin kicks off the first session on Study Design and key stats you need to know.
FPMRS 2022 ORAL Exam CandidatesCongratulations on submitting your case list! If there is an issue at all, ABOG will be contacting you shortly. Don’t panic if more information or reformatting is needed. They will give you a few days to regroup without a late fee charged.
Next - onto the bulk of your studying. The ABOG study guide gives a nice outline to start from, and if you haven’t yet, start organizing reading material into categories such as urinary and fecal incontinence, prolapse, pain syndromes and sexual dysfunction. Include reading lists from ACOG publications, up to date or doximity reviews, and textbooks. Also, it is not too late to sign up for our Oral Exam Webinar which starts February 13th. All webinars are archived for our candidates so if you miss a few, catching up is simple. Each is an hour in length and sessions are case-based reviews of all the most important topics. Being able to participate in live conversations gives a slightly more relaxed mock oral feel as well as the ability to watch and hear your colleague's approaches to cases to further develop more concise and professional answers.
Your exam will include structured cases. The lead-in question is brief – just a few words or no more than a sentence. About half are immediately followed by three questions:
How would you work up the patient?
How would you manage her?
