Mock Oral Board Examination

Preparation Course

The University of Colorado Department of Ophthalmology currently offers the only full-length, mock oral examination for ophthalmology in the country. This half-day course is designed to replicate the actual oral exam in every aspect possible.

The course attempts to improve examinees readiness for the oral board examination through a live oral exam that closely simulates the format, content, and timing o​f the actual examination. In simulated exam rooms, attendees will complete six 30 minute, face-to-face encounters presenting up to ten clinical cases and describing how they would care for that patient. Upon completion of the mock exam, attendees will have the opportunity to review their performance with examiners and receive feedback on ways to improve exam techniques.

This mock, or pretend, oral board course has been created based on public information gathered from the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) website, printed policies, and our own personal and clinical experience. No ABO material has been replicated, recalled, or taken from the actual examination. Clinical cases and material in this course that seem to be similar to the ABO exam is coincidental as it is impossible to know what specific material will be covered on any given exam day. It is against ABO rules to divulge specific information regarding prior or future examination content. 

No guarantee is given regarding the accuracy of any statements or opinions given in the course. 
This mock oral board exam is not affiliated, approved, or endorsed by the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO).

Lastly, it is the responsibility of the licensed practitioner to determine the best treatment for their patients, and as such neither the University, Hospital, Department*, nor the Course Directors assume any liability for any injury and/or damage to individuals or property arising from this course.
