“I took your course for the adult boards and was so impressed that I had no doubt that I would sign up again for the course to review for the Child Psych boards. I can’t state empathically enough how helpful it was – both in terms of its educational value, the opportunity to practice and to alleviate some of the anxiety that these exams generate. Thanks and best of luck to you!” Naomi Chevalier, MD, New Gardens, NY
8 AUDIO CDs:Learn by listening to my step-by-step instructions on exactly what to do on the patient interview, on the presentation to the examiners, and on the written and video vignettes. Listen in your car as many times as you wish to these CDs without taking any additional time out of your day.
10 VIDEO DVDs: View these DVDs on your TV or computer. Eight of the DVDs demonstrate real CAP Oral Board candidates participating in realistic mock exams just weeks prior to their exams (four adolescent patient mock exams and four vignette mock-exams). Two additional DVDs demonstrate a board-certified Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist interviewing real teen patients to provide you a model of the exam interview style.
5 WRITTEN MANUALS: Review this proprietary written reference material on exam techniques. Read the step-by-step instructions covering every conceivable aspect of the exam performance. (These are the transcripts of the audio CDs with additional study material included.).
“Wonderful! Examiners were good. This course helped greatly in increasing my confidence. This course was recommended by a colleague and I will keep recommending it.” Abiola Babalakin, MD, Chattanooga, TN
“This was a great course –very helpful in synthesizing large amounts of information into a coherent easy to remember system. All of the techniques for clinical interviewing while under stress were highly valuable.” George Morese, MD
Join us for this highly interactive skill-building day practicing the most challenging exam skills under Dr. Krasuski's direct supervision. This is just a sample of all the skills you master during this high-intensity day.
THERAPEUTIC ENGAGEMENT SKILLS: You learn how to engage patients therapeutically, even defiant, disorganized, or mute ones. If you do not master this skill, nothing else matters. Examiners are extremely sensitive to your approach to the "Physician-Patient Relationship," the first scoring category.
PSYCHOLOGICAL UNDERSTANDING SKILLS: You learn both to understand myriad aspects of the patient's psychological function, a favorite area of examiner questions, as well as justify the most sensible psychotherapy for the patient.
INTERVIEW MAPPING SKILLS: You learn to maintain a disciplined, well-paced 30-minute interview that is mapped out according to Dr. Krasuski's mapping system so that you take notes that actually guide your interview and presentation, that permit you to keep on time, and that make missing important informational areas nearly impossible.
PRESENTATION SYSTEM SKILLS: You learn how to organize your case presentation, formulation (that you need to know in to two different formats), the differential diagnosis, and the management plan according to rule-based systems that virtually guide you into the correct presentation approach. Using Dr. Krasuski's systems makes it actually more difficult to present incorrectly than it is to present in the most effective way.
VIDEO OBSERVATION & PRESENTATION SKILLS: You learn the most common mistakes to avoid in the video clip observation and learn the system that permits you to anticipate each of the examiner's questions - yes, they tend to follow a standard template.
VIGNETTE ANALYSIS & PRESENTATION SKILLS: You learn how to analyze the vignette at the time you are reading it so that you extract all the pertinent details. You also learn the little tricks the vignette writers use to trip-up the unsuspecting candidate. Then, as in the video clip, you learn how to anticipate the examiner questions.
“Interesting, fast moving course with helpful tips from experts, state of the art information that is frequently updated. Great opportunity to network with other physicians from all over the country. Nice clinical capsules to help on the oral board exam. Lots of CME credits!” Rosalie Casano, MD
MOCK EXAM TRAINING DAYS: Immediately following the Boot Camp Day, you stay and participate in 4 additional days of realistic mock-exam training under our expert faculty's guidance. Gain exposure to a variety of adolescent patients as well as pre-school and school age video clips and written vignettes. Every vignette, video clip and patient is different. Note a new course improvement - we now have both the adolescent mock exams and the vignette mock-exams running all day every day. So if you are only interested in preparing for only one exam section, you will be actively learning all day long! Every vignette and patient is different, and you’ll gain valuable insight as you watch your colleagues being evaluated and compare notes regarding your own performance
RECEIVE TWO MOCK-EXAMS OF YOUR CHOICE: You may take one adolescent patient interview mock-exam AND one vignette mock-exam OR you may wish to take two of each. It is your option. The adolescent patient interview mock exam is 75 minutes in length and the vignette mock-exam is 90 minutes in length. Oral and written feedback is provided during the included 15-minute feedback session.
"This course is highly recommended as a worthwhile investment. I feel that the education and experimental aspects are invaluable. I believe the benefits extend far beyond course completion. Thank you, Dr. Krasuski and team, for all your hard work." Michael Mirzai, MD, Wai Pahu, HA
