AANS
Goodman Oral Board Preparation

Overview

The 2023 AANS Goodman Oral Board Preparation course is highly interactive and simulates the examination given by the American Board of Neurological Surgery (ABNS).

Started in 1997 by Julius Goodman, MD, this course is the premier neurosurgical oral board review, with over 90% of candidates attending at least once prior to taking the exam. The must-attend 2023 AANS Goodman Oral Board Preparation course reflects the changes in the ABNS Oral Examination. Practicing neurosurgeons who register for the full course have the opportunity to attend at least four breakout sessions specific to their subspecialty to prepare for the focused-practice portion of the exam.

Registration includes a copy of Goodman’s Neurosurgery Oral Board Review by Allan D. Levi, MD, PhD, FAANS.
