Mock Orals for Residents

The Mock Orals for Residents (MORE) program is designed to give residents in training the unique opportunity to obtain quality mock oral exams while learning the attributes of a Perioperative Consultant. The goal is not only to give residents a head start on oral boards preparation, but to elevate their level of critical thinking, patient care, and professional interactions to a consultant level during residency.
