This is for the Friday Program:
The purpose of the 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. This is a highly interactive course that emulates the oral board exam given by the American Board of Urology. Attendees will participate in two-75 minute mock oral exams, a role play practice session with take-home cases, an interactive case analysis with an expert examiner, and an “Ask the Experts” panel discussion with Faculty who offer tips & tricks for taking the exam and give you the opportunity to ask questions.
In addition to experiencing mock oral exams that are realistic, attendees will also receive immediate feedback and guidance from expert oral examiners, as well as 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.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Practice the format of the oral board exam.
- Utilize interpersonal and communication skills that result in effective information exchange.
- Demonstrate skills to effectively manage anxiety and "exam nerves".
- Develop greater self-awareness and confidence in oral examination.
