Course Director

Overview

This nationally recognized program provides a comprehensive, streamlined, and timely review of pediatrics for physicians who are preparing for the American Board of Pediatrics certification examination and re-certification process. It is the only completely comprehensive pediatric board review available and is scheduled shortly before the examination to maintain maximum familiarity with test-taking skills and enable maximum retention of material.

This course is specifically designed to present the material designated as necessary by the American Board of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatrics for preparation of board certification. The complete review is a six-day course in order to cover all the relevant material. Topics will be covered in a comprehensive and understandable fashion with specific focus on the intensive preparation required just prior to participating in the exam process. Course faculty have been chosen for expertise in their fields, their dynamic speaking styles, and their ability to focus on essential content.

Participants will receive a detailed syllabus on the first day of the course to use during and after course completion, as well as a Board-format practice pretest that will be emailed several weeks prior to the course to complete and use as a study guide, and as a post-test upon completion of the course. The course also includes the opportunity to study radiology and clinical picture-based Board-format questions that will be reviewed at the end of each day.

Target Audience

Target audience includes Internal Medicine and Categorical pediatric residents, practicing pediatricians (re-certification now required), and other health care professionals wishing to review necessary concepts in pediatrics and keep updated on current developments in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions seen in pediatric practice.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to implement:

  • knowledge of the format and style of Board questions.
  • successful test taking skills.
  • an increased understanding of necessary concepts in pediatrics.
  • new knowledge learned to their current and future practice.
