Oral Board Review Course (2019): Friday
The purpose of AUA Oral Board Review Course is to prepare attendees for the ABU Certifying Examination (Part II). The course will provide attendees with valuable practice and preparation skills for taking the urology oral board exam in Dallas. This highly interactive course emulates the oral board exam given by the American Board of Urology. Attendees will participate in two-75 minute mock oral exam sessions as well as case discussion with expert examiners, role play practice sessions, a guidelines review, and a dinner session with our expert faculty who will offer tips and tricks for taking the exam, and more! In addition to experiencing mock oral exams that are realistic, attendees will also receive guidance from expert oral examiners and the opportunity to refine thought process, communication skills and decision-making ability.
Attendees must choose Friday Program OR Saturday Program when registering. Can choose either/ or, not both.
