Additional Oral Boards Resources
The popular CNS Oral Boards Review Course will be offered virtually September 11–12. It has been redesigned to reflect the ABNS exam and prepare you for the general or subspecialty-based neurosurgical oral exam, with a focus on best patient management studies. By participating in this course, you will gain knowledge, confidence, and experience with the exam format.
Highly interactive, the course prepares you for the case-based nature of the exam with multiple learning formats, including didactic, case presentations, and small-group discussions. One-on-one sessions give you the opportunity to present a case (one that has not been submitted for the ABNS Oral Examination) to a faculty member and receive relevant feedback on indications and subsequent follow-through that will aid your performance on the ABNS exam.
In addition, take advantage of the opportunity for post-course quiz sessions with faculty leading up to the Oral Boards exam, exclusively for course attendees.
The course allows you to see where your gaps in knowledge lie and take the right steps to fill those gaps. To achieve the best possible outcome, the CNS provides a multi-pronged learning approach.
Course Directors: Garni Barkhoudarian and Robert J. Spinner
