You Don't Want to Miss the Cleveland Clinic Comprehensive Anesthesiology Review
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 co-morbidities 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. Each registrant will be entitled to attend written board sessions each evening at which written questions will be presented, discussed and answered, grouped by themes. These sessions will be moderated by faculty who regularly organize and hold sessions for our residency program. The participant will also have the option of attending our mock oral examinatio n seminar, where 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 ultrasound for CV access, and an ultrasound regional anesthesia workshop are included at no cost.
An additional benefit of this course will be the enduring materi als provided with registration to all participants. We will provide a syllabus that will be comprehensive and appropriate to a review course. We will also provide the syllabus material in a formatted jump drive which will be a benefit to those attending the course. Our goal is to provide an excellent product at an affordable price.
