Course Description
The CNS two day, comprehensive Oral Board Exam Preparation Review Course is conveniently offered one month before the ABNS Oral Board Exam and concurrent with the 2017 CNS Annual Meeting. The CNS recognizes that with the new format of the ABNS Oral Exam, the need to prepare is greater than ever. We have not only created an interactive course to address each need, provide confidence, and help attendees pass the first time, but the course fits within a larger, comprehensive review package.

The course itself has been adapted to closely align with the new ABNS exam format. Reinforce your knowledge through multiple learning formats, including didactic, case presentations, and small-group discussion. Expert faculty will lead small group, “hot-seat” drills to prepare physicians for the updated case-based nature of the exam. 

All attendees should be prepared to bring a patient case with complications they have encountered over the course of their practice. You will have an opportunity to go over this case and receive relevant feedback that will directly influence your performance on the oral exam.

Register now for this highly interactive course to enhance your test skills, identify knowledge gaps and pass the ABNS Oral Board Exam.

  • This course includes a pre-course live webinar held in September, where each subspecialty faculty member will share study tips, resources, and advice.
  • After the course, sign up for a live subspecialty webinar series that keep confidence levels high and immediately precedes the exam itself. 

The CNS designates this activity for a maximum of 16.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
