You Don’t Want to Miss Cleveland Clinic's Comprehensive Anesthesiology Review – March 23-28, 2015
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 invited 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 the Cleveland Clinic residency program. The participants will also have the option of attending the mock oral examination 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, pain management workshop, central venous access workshop, and an ultrasound regional anesthesia workshop are included at no cost. A lung isolation workshop is available for a small additional fee.
An additional benefit included in your course registration will be the enduring materials provided with registration. We will provide an electronic syllabus that will be an enduring benefit to those attending the course. The final unique feature will be access via password to a website that will contain materials including “100 tips for passing your Boards” created from the experiences of our large faculty. Our goal is to provide an excellent product at an affordable price.
