2019 AANS Goodman Oral Board Preparation
The 2019 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 has become the premier neurosurgical oral board review course, with over 90 percent of candidates attending at least once prior to taking the exam. The 2019 AANS Goodman Oral Board Preparation course reflects the changes in the ABNS Oral Board Exam. Practicing neurosurgeons who register for the full course will have the opportunity to attend at least four breakout sessions specific to their subspecialty to assist in preparation for the focused-practice portion of the exam.
The AANS is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The AANS designates this live activity for a maximum of 25.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate to their participation in the activity.
