Description

This course is designed to be a comprehensive review of anesthesiology, including clinical anesthesia and subspecialties such as cardiothoracic, obstetric and pediatric anesthesiology, critical care, acute and chronic pain medicine, and perioperative medicine. Included in perioperative medicine is coverage of the most common comorbidities relevant to anesthesia and the basic science associated with anesthesia.

The course sessions are designed to help improve the participant’s performance on written and oral anesthesiology examinations. As an added benefit, registrants can attend written practice board sessions each evening during which written questions will be presented, discussed, and answered. These sessions, which are included in the registration fee, will be grouped by themes and moderated by faculty who regularly organize and hold sessions for our residency program.

Participants will have the option of attending a mock oral examina tion strategy seminar in which proper techniques (and common errors) will be demonstrated using faculty as both examiner and candidate, with active debriefing sessions involving all participants.

A TEE workshop, emergency airway workshop, and an ultrasound regional anesthesia workshops are included at no cost.

Additional course benefits provided as part of registration include the following:

  • Meeting materials;
  • Comprehensive syllabus material on a CD-ROM or paper;
  • Access via password to the website “100 tips for passing your Boards;”

Our goal is to provide an excellent product at an affordable price.
