Two summer courses have been scheduled for the innovative ACS General Surgery Oral Examination Prep Course: Tuesday, August 22, and Friday, August 25. The deadline to apply for either session is Friday, July 21.
The 1-day virtual course helps prepare candidates for the General Surgery Certifying Examination. The course focuses on the cognitive elements of responding to examination questions, applying decision-making algorithms, and conveying care plans with key decision points and rationale. Each participant will complete three, 30-minute oral examinations with three different pairs of expert faculty members who provide individualized verbal and written feedback.
Participant testimonials have shown that candidates feel more prepared for the oral examination after participating in this course: “The ACS mock oral course was very beneficial. It provides a similar experience to the real oral boards and the feedback was very helpful.”
