Must-Know CasesWhat are the Must-Know Cases?

The Must-Know Cases is a highly popular, extremely effective series of webinar recordings intended to jump start your journey to becoming a Perioperative Consultant. Dynamic discussion, vivid Power Point presentations, and expert instruction on a variety of high-yield topics have helped make these sessions an essential part of any serious candidate’s preparation.  Through a series of case-based discussions, the course logically introduces and builds upon the essential knowledge, skills, and attributes needed to become a Consultant and pass the exam.

The Key to Masterycalendar icon bottom

As with any skill, repetition and reinforcement are the keys to mastery. Our Must-Know Cases repeatedly emphasize the importance of Consultant principles as applied to case-based perioperative management. Through meticulous case dissection, dynamic interactive instruction, and evidence-based modeling of answers, participants learn by seeing, thinking, and practicing on their own. It is a multimodal, multimedia approach that has become the gold standard for educators and one we have employed with great success for years.

Don’t just memorize… understand and become a more knowledgeable, confident Consultant physician. All you need is a computer or any mobile device.  Cost of series $395.  Recordings available for 3 months from date of purchase.
