Workshops “Test yourself: Am I ready for the board exam?”

Following the great success of the first edition, this workshop will be repeated during the SCR’19! This workshops are dedicated to residents who prepare for the second part of their board examination. It aims to train them to withstand an examination situation by simulating the oral board examination (how can I improve myself in presenting a case, react to questions etc.). An experienced examiner will test one resident while the other group members observe.
The focus will be on practising the board examination in real-conditions rather than on the case itself.
There will be 4 examiners and 4 groups of 4 residents. Each participant will be tested once. Each group will meet all the examiners.

Organisers: A. Kobe, Zurich/CH; G. Andreisek, Münsterlingen/CH
Price: CHF 40,00
