Introducing Anesthesiology Boards Made Easy: A physician’s step by step guide to make your board preparation successful.
Why Anesthesiology Boards Made Easy?
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. It’s great you are getting a paycheck for your work, but you still need to study for yet another set of board exams. Trying to balance these two roles is difficult when there is so much to learn and only so much time. Since these exams will cost you both time and money, you will want to only have to take them once.
With such a high stakes game, where do you begin? This insider’s strategy guide will show you how to successfully pass your exams and become Board Certified. You have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to get a college degree, a medical degree, and for the extensive training you have taken so far to get you where you are now. As with any game, there are objectives, goals, strategy, tactics, skills, knowledge, and luck. Most residents use knowledge and luck to pass the boards.
In this book, I will give you a road map 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.) I will teach you the strategy, tactics and skills to be a boarded anesthesiologist.
With the integrated approach presented in this book, Anesthesiology Boards Made Easy will not only help you learn the material for the Boards, it will also help you become a better anesthesiologist as well.
