COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is an intensive board review designed to assist podiatrists in preparation of the written as well as computer based patient simulation (CBPS) examination for the surgery, orthopedic and primary podiatric medicine boards.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

The goal of the Comprehensive Board Review seminar is to educate and prepare podiatric physicians to take certification examination in podiatric surgery, orthopedics, and primary podiatric medicine offered through the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery (ABFAS) and the American Board of Podiatric Medicine (ABPM). Relevant materials will be presented in an abridged manner due to the extensive material covered on the certification examination. Notes will be supplied in respective areas and insight will be given on how to prepare for the CBPS examination. Subject material being covered is listed in the program and physicians should be able to identify disease processes, appropriate conservative treatment, surgical criteria and appropriate therapeutic procedures.
