From the author of Anesthesia Made Easy comes the next step in your training to become an anesthesiologist.
When you became an anesthesiology resident, no one told you that you would have a full time job as an anesthesiology resident learning your craft and be a full time student getting ready for more exams. Since these exams will cost you both time and money, you will want to only have to take them once.
Trying to balance these two roles is difficult when there is so much to learn and only so much time. It is not enough that you have the knowledge, you have to know how to use it. You have worked too hard to get into anesthesiology residency training to blow it on not being able to become Board Certified. With such a high stakes game, where do you begin?
Anesthesiology Boards Made Easy is the insider’s strategy guide for residents to show you how to successfully play the game and become Board Certified. After all, if you were going to play a challenging game, you would try to figure out the objectives, rules, knowledge, strategy, tactics, and skills (plus a little luck) to win … right?
In this book, I will give you a roadmap to explain how the boards work, how to make your studying more efficient and less painful, and how to prepare for the most challenging exam of your career: The dreaded Applied Exam. (It is a 70 minute oral exam void of multiple choice questions given to you by experts in the field of anesthesiology. Some of the oral board examiners wrote the very books you will study to take the exam.)
Section One - The Game: You will learn the broad overview of how to become board certified.
Section Two - Doing Well on Your Written Exams: This is where we get into the strategies, tactics, and skills to pass your written exams. You will have several written exams to master including your USMLE/COMLEX Step 3, the Anesthesiology In Training Exam (ITE), the ABA Basic Exam, and the ABA Advanced Exam.
Section Three - Graduating From Residency: Most residents think they just have to show and get through. Not so. There are some residents who sail through residency and others who struggle. Learn how to efficiently maneuver through your training program.
Section Four - Passing Your Applied Exam: This is the largest section of the book, because you will be taking the Applied Exam as an oral exam. Starting in March 2018, you will also have an OSCE integrated to it as well. Learn how to prepare and take your first professional oral examination.
Section Five - Year by Year Checklists: With so much information in Anesthesiology Boards Made Easy where do you begin? This group of year by year checklists will meet you where you are in your training. It does not matter if you are an Intern or graduated from residency, this book will help you get ready for your exams.
What are you waiting for? Order your copy of Anesthesiology Boards Made Easy and build strategies, tactics, and skills into your Board studying which will help you become Board Certified with the least amount of pain possible.
