Since 2011, I have mentored and coached many candidates. While doing so, I noticed that each candidate had different needs. Some needed to increase their knowledge. Others needed to get over their fear of speaking. And every one needed to practice mock exams.
You will pass you oral ABOG or AOBOG exam.
I’m Dr. Diane Evans, D.O., M.S, F.A.C.O.G., F.A.C.O.O.G.
Here at Passing Your OBGYN Boards, our goal is to individualize the best study plan for you. Why is this important? It’s important because we all learn differently.
Lets use me as an example, I am a kinesthetic learner. What does this mean? It means I have to see do touch feel listen and then I can start to learn material. In order for me to understand my least favorite topic (sorry in advance to all those uro-gynecologists), I had to actually perform the procedures, I am so appreciative of my awesome mentors at Indian Health Services that were doing laparoscopic abdominal sacrocolpopexies back in 2008!!! After doing the procedure I watched several got out my favorite dog-eared Anatomy texts, Netter (it is a must for the boards) and studied my board review materials from ABC Board review in conjunction with Telinds Gynecology.
Mentoring and Coaching are the keys to success.
The most famous author, scientist, and physician all have a mentor. Why is a mentor important for the ABOG or AOBOG obgyn boards? You need a sounding-board, encouragement someone you trust to redirect your energy when you get discouraged, and focus your studies based on your adult-learner style ** (click on this for definition). to help keep you organized. Our company uses a group of board certified OB/GYNs to help guide you down the path to becoming board certified thus spending less energy on searching the internet for the best resources, tools, books, mock examiners etc.
Dr. Evans graduated with a BS from Drexel University double majoring in Physiology and Nutrition. She was a bench researcher and obtained her MS in Molecular Biology. She realized she could make more of a difference with hands on so obtained her DO from the University of Health Sciences in Kansas City. While in osteopathic school, she became moderator for Student Doctor Forum, a passion that she continues still. She completed her OB/GYN residency at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. Dr. Evans is double boarded by ABOG and AOBOG! Thus she is in a rare and unique position to help you with either certifying exam.
