OPTION TO AUDIT //

Back by Popular Demand in 2018:  In response to feedback from previous participants, the 2018 Part II Course will include a limited number of seats available for practicing surgeons planning to take the Oral Boards after 2018. The audit/observation experience is designed to help you understand the key points of how to select patients for surgery during your collection period, how to appropriately document patient notes, and how to deal with complications as they occur. You will participate in morning lectures and have the opportunity to observe colleagues in the mock exam setting. This is an excellent opportunity to be proactive regarding your collection period. Register using the “Option to Audit” on the registration menu.

I attended the course this year as an auditor to help improve my documentation during the case collection period. I will be back next year for the real thing! — A 2017 Participant
