OSLER General Surgery Review 2019
OSLER General Surgery Review 2019 is designed to update your clinical knowledge-base as well as to help you pass your General Surgery exams. Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating current best practice concepts, surgical approaches, and clinical follow-up strategies. As a result, it provides a good review for your ABS written exams as well as providing a thorough general surgery review for physicians in practice. Many previous learners have found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and planning strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical approaches for the principle areas covered by general surgeons, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for self-study.
