American Society of Plastic Surgeons: Oral & Written Board Preparation Course

  2. 2. Dear Attendees,The ASPS Oral and Written Board Preparation Course is interactive and comprehensive, usingmore than 100 plastic surgery cases to provide a thorough overview of plastic surgery principlesand management problems. Case scenarios will be presented providing a broad review ofpertinent topics in clinical plastic surgery. The course will include topic modules in the areas ofbreast/aesthetic, hand/complex wounds/burns/scars, craniofacial/head and neck, and CPT coding.Patient safety issues will be emphasized in each presentation. Specifically, avoidance andmanagement of complications as well as general principles involved in assuring patient safetywill be addressed. The course also provides exposure to the format of the oral and writtenboards and participants will have the opportunity to practice answering questions underpressure. Dual concurrent sessions will address topics specific to oral board preparation andwritten board preparation.Some of the unique advantages of this course over other study programs include: dual concurrenttracks for customized learning allowing focus on either the oral or written exams as appropriate;practice sessions that allow ample time to get the feel of answering questions while facultyprovide immediate feedback; and one-on-one discussion with faculty who will offer guidanceon preparation of your oral board case books.Intended Audience: This course is appropriate for surgeons seeking a review of clinical science andpatient safety issues. It is useful for those preparing to take the oral and written ABPS examinationsand serves as an educational resource for MOC efforts.We look forward to helping you prepare for the exams!Corporate support for this activity provided by:Paul D. Smith, MD Jason K. Potter, MD, DDSProgram Chair Program Co-Chair
