Frequently Asked Questions

No – all our content is scripted and written in a way to demonstrate what a perfect answer on the oral boards can sound and look like (non-verbal communication). This allows you to learn how to effectively and confidently deliver all the right answers instead of watching other candidates that may be providing the wrong answers.

It’s a novel technique that we have developed which allows you to prepare for the certifying exam using an active approach. The SIM allows you to participate in a mock oral boards simulation as if it was live. This technique has been demonstrated to increase exam performance and help you develop the very skill the oral boards is testing you on – communication!

Yes – all our content is optimized to be run on mobile devices. This means you can listen to the videos on your drive to work. However, we encourage all SurgBoards users to primarily use the SIM while preparing for the oral boards.

Yes. We think that 4-months is the ideal amount of time to dedicate for oral boards prep – 2 months of light studying/practice and 2 months of intense studying/practice. However, we understand that this isn’t possible for everyone and so we provide SurgBoards users with 4-month, 3-month, 2-month and 1-month study-guides.

Nearly everything! We feel this is a one-stop-solution for your oral boards prep. We think SurgBoards users have everything they will need to successfully pass the oral boards with just our content.

This is a service we offer only to our SurgBoards users in which you will have a 6-hour session over zoom with a master surgical educator. These sessions focus on high yield content in the form of mock oral board scenarios. In addition, you will receive tips, pearls and pitfalls, and strategies to help you appear confident, poised and polished with your presentation. If you feel like you need additional support or would like more opportunities to practice scenarios, this may be an option for you. Please email support@surgboards.com if you are interested.

Unfortunately, no. Since there are only a limited number of intensive sessions available, we only offer this to our SurgBoards users. However, single one-on-one sessions (30 minutes with 10 minutes of feedback) can be booked by the general public as long as there are appointments available.

Although our content was curated specifically for candidates actively preparing for the general surgery certifying exam (oral boards), we feel that SurgBoards is an excellent tool for current junior and chief residents to learn about all the classic oral boards scenarios and help you stand out as a superstar in your program.

We allow users to continue using our platform for 4-months.

We are so confident in our product that we are happy to give you a 24-hour trial for free with complete access to the platform along with the entire video library and study guides. Just email us at support@surgboards.com along with your full name and where you trained (or are training) for general surgery residency. We usually reply back within 24-hours.
