Module 2 Webcast (2018): Core Urology - Exam Overview and Test Taking Logistics

Specifically designed for anyone unable to get away from the office to attend the Live Course, the Webcast option delivers the same great content. Purchase of the Webcast features simultaneous presentation slides and audio recorded from the Live Course and includes access to online course materials.

The purpose of the Life Long Learning Prep Course: A Focused Review is to prepare attendees for the ABU knowledge assessment. This course will be practice-focused and will offer practical and clinically-specific updates. It will highlight the AUA guidelines and address general urology practice issues that can be expected on the knowledge assessment. The course will model the changes to the ABU exam by covering Core/General Urology on the first day followed by Module 2: Calculi, Laparoscopy-Robotics and Upper Tract Obstruction on the second day.

Sample multiple choice practice questions as well as case-based discussions and debates will be utilized to prepare attendees for the upcoming knowledge assessment. For more information on the changes to the exam, please visit www.abu.org/recertification.
