C004 - Conquer the Boards: An Experiential Review

Friday, February 16; 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in one’s knowledge base for the dermatopathology and multiple choice sections of the American Board of Dermatology certification exam and review high yield, exam relevant material.
  • Familiarize participants with the American Board of Dermatology certification exam format.
  • Practice time management techniques pertinent to a timed exam.

Description

This Certification Exam Prep Course is a hands-on experience where attendees take a simulated, shortened version of the American Board of Dermatology certification exam. Attendees will be able to increase their comfort with the exam format, while practicing time management and identifying areas of weakness in their knowledge base. The morning exam will consist of two sections: dermatopathology glass slides and a written multiple choice exam which will incorporate images. In the afternoon, expert faculty will review the answers of the exam, providing high yield information for the certification exam. Residents attending this course should walk away with a better understanding of the pace and structure of the exam.
