Mock Orals

Mock Orals will once again be offered as part of the OCACS Annual Meeting. Mock Orals are open to PGY-4&5, as well as Fellows. In an attempt to simulate the real exam, we make every attempt to pair residents with faculty not from their home institution. Residents typically take two 30-minute exams with written feedback at the end of the session. Mock orals will take place between 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm on Saturday, April 7.
