    Submission of 1-2 Cases

    During the afternoon sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to present their “nightmare” case or problem situation to the group and have them assist in coming up with the best defense strategy. We use this as a way to stimulate group discussion about how to prepare the case list and how to think like an examiner. In prior years, this has been one of the most popular portions of the course!  Faculty will provide feedback at the end.  Please type in the information directly from your case list into the template (Download the Office Template or the Surgical Cases Template). Be sure to include your name and then email your case directly to Jennifer Hastings at
