Mock Oral Course
14th Annual Mid-America Radiation Oncology Mock Oral Course (Virtual)
Join us on April 13-14, 2024
Ronald Chen, M.D., Chair and Professor of the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Kansas School of Medicine welcomes current residents, newly practicing physicians to the 14th Annual Mid-Americal Radiation Oncology Mock Oral Course.
The University of Kansas mock oral workshop and review course provides current residents and recent graduates preparing for the radiation oncology oral board exam a robust means of assessing their current knowledge level in a collegial venue that simulates the oral board examination.
During the Saturday mock oral workshop, each participant will be placed in a simulated exam setting with invited physician experts from both academic and community-based practices. During each case-based session, the examiner will systematically go through standardized, disease-site-specific cases with the examinee, followed by brief oral feedback.
Sunday's mock oral review course involves each disease site lead providing a 30-minute presentation that reviews the cases from the mock oral workshop. This lecture-style setting welcomes inquiries and discussion from examinees to provide a deeper understanding and evaluation of the content.
Constructive written feedback will also be provided via a standardized, computer-based scoring system, made available to the examinee 4-5 days after the conclusion of the course. By garnering more experience in this exam setting, the examinee can gain insight into their strengths, as well as any areas that could use more attention.
100% of 2023 course attendees said they would recommend the event to their colleagues.
Registration is now open. Attendees can sign up before February 28 for our Early Bird rate of $250.
