Vascular Trainee Educational Opportunities
Virtual Mock Orals
2023 Dates: Tuesday, May 9 @ 5:00pm CST & Wednesday, September 20, 2023 @ 5:00pm CST
The MVSS is pleased to offer the Virtual Mock Orals Exam twice this year to help accommodate more trainees.
The Mock Oral Exam provides trainees from across the Midwest an opportunity to experience the certifying exam format in three different rooms from six examiners from various academic and community programs. The trainees will likely be examined by someone not from their training program and will receive on-site feedback directly from the examiners to improve exam taking skills. Participation is limited to 15 Trainees per event on a first-come basis with priority given to those in their final year of training (ie. PGY 7 fellowship or 5th year, integrated vascular surgery residency).
