“Great course! I feel so much more confident now that I know better interview and presentation techniques, common pitfalls, and things to remain mindful of during the exam. I also learned that the vignette portion can be just as tough and challenging as the live patient portion of the exam. Thanks for offering such a great program.” Linda Harvey, MD, Atlanta, GA
“This is a wonderful course. You learn tricks on how to pass the exam. They teach you exactly what you need to know, which will boost your confidence and reduce your anxiety levels.” Osman Qureshi, MD, East Hartford, CT
Join us for this highly interactive skill-building day practicing the most challenging exam skills under my 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 my mapping system so that you takes 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 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 our 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.
“The advice and templates that were given to organize a psychoactive interview will be very helpful for the exam and for my general practice. I am a much more organized and confident interviewer thanks to the course.” Kari Jones, MD, Baton Rouge, LA
MOCK EXAM TRAINING DAYS: Immediately following the Boot Camp Day, you will stay and participate in 3 additional days of realistic mock-exam training under our expert faculty's guidance. Gain exposure to an average of 36 written vignettes, 12 board-style video clips, and 12 different patient interviews. 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.
