PBR’s 2017 Pediatric Board Review Course – A Complete SYSTEM

PBR's NEW 2017 Pediatric Board Review EXPERIENCE is HERE!

2017 Pediatric Board Review Course“Test Day” can be a terribly stressful and anxiety provoking time for the pediatric board exam. The key to avoiding that stress and anxiety is to have a solid foundation and to make the experience almost mechanical. The only way to do that is to become so familiar with your pediatric board review course that you know it inside and out.

PBR's 2017 pediatric board review course is a complete SYSTEM, including an online, offline, personal, and community-driven EXPERIENCE. As physicians, we're trained to tackle hundreds to thousands of pages in order to learn “everything.” It's the wrong approach to studying for the boards, as is a “top down” approach on vignette style board questions. PBR helps you learn about the exam as well as the content you need to pass it.

The PBR Certification System

The PBR Certification SystemTM Includes…

  • The Clarity Expander: Understand the proper mindset, the tools, the study strategies, and the right study resources needed to prepare for such a difficult exam. For example, did you know that the AAP PREP questions are NOT the best study questions? Or that information overwhelm from using too many resources is one of the top 3 reasons good pediatricians fail the boards? Or that you should NOT try to study every single topic laid out in the American Board of Pediatrics content outline?
  • The Retention Maximizer: Maximize your chances of content retention through common sense explanations, innovative “DOUBLE TAKE” topics which are repeated throughout the Core Study Guide, PBR “PEARLS” of knowledge that are guaranteed to show up on the exam, “story-based” mnemonics, and concise yet comprehensive content.
  • The Repetition Amplifier: Utilize multimodality studying through online videos, downloadable MP3s, mobile access, an online picture atlas, and other creative techniques to allow you to review the same core material multiple times by using technology to enhance your efficiency and interest in the material. We even have a tool that allows you to review 25 hours of video content in just 12 hours.
  • The Strategic Approach: Learn Test-Taking Strategies that allow you to systematically approach, dissect, and answer board-style questions on standardized exams. There ARE rules that you can learn to help you “beat the board game” and pass your exam.
  • The Network Experience: Do NOT study isolation. Utilize the support of hundreds of pediatricians in the PBR Facebook CREW to help you quickly answer your board review questions. Work with Team PBR to create a study schedule and plan specifically designed for you. Attend live webinars and get answers to your questions so that your confidence level is high and your anxiety is low. You SHOULD NOT have to do this alone, and the PBR community is here to support you.

Through videos like the one below, you will begin to quickly understand why PBR is not a “traditional” pediatric board review company. We're focused on helping physicians in ways that have been done before. In the video below, I share with you the arrival of the NEW 2017 Edition of the PBR Core Study Guide, the NEW 2017 Edition of the Question & Answer books, two NEW chapter additions, and some other exciting news!

2015 Pediatric Board Review Course“How Will the 2017 Pediatrics Board Review EXPERIENCE Help Me?”

THE TYPICAL BOARD REVIEW EXPERIENCE FOR PEDIATRICIANS

As a pediatrician, when you work with a traditional board review company you most likely get a hardcopy study guide, perhaps a pediatric board review DVD course, or maybe you attend a live board review course. Then, you decide that you want to buy another company's resources too. If you're really ambitious, you might even have a full review of Nelson's on your list of books to read.

You try to study as much you can from as many resources as you can. You do so in isolation because of competing demands on your time (work, spouse, kids, social obligations, sleep), and you have a difficult time coming up with a good study schedule that they can actually stick with.

A FEW WORDS OF THANKS TO THE PBR COMMUNITY

Every year I like to go through all PBR error submission and send corrections to PBR members before the initial certification exam. It’s an EXTREMELY time consuming task (takes several full days), but I believe it’s worth it.

If you have followed THE PBR EFFICIENCY BLUEPRINTthe information in this guide SHOULD NOT make or break your test experience. However, several test-takers have previously said that they enjoyed reading our “Corrections & Clarifications Guide” because the review allowed them to correctly answer several questions that came up on the exam. With the 2016 Initial Certification exam just around the corner, this guide was first sent out to all PBR members, and now it's being made available to you, too!

Pediatric Board Review Online Video Course - Like a DVD Course but BETTER!

 

So, I'd like to start by simply stating a fact:

Live pediatric board review conferences ARE broken! 

The traditional board review courses surely served their purpose in the past, but given how much technology we have at our disposal these days, they no longer make any sense.

Here's a list of just some of the feedback I’ve heard from former Pediatrics Board Review members who went on to pass the pediatric boards after they had previously failed the pediatric while using other board review materials, including 3-6 day live conferences:

I spent $2000 or more on the conference alone, plus airfare, hotel, and car rental. Not to mention the time off I had to take from work. That was one expensive headache!

Do I really need to know about the 5 subsets of eczema? The subspecialists talked about so much random stuff that it left me lost.

I was essentially being forced to consume eight hours of content per day for three days on their schedule, and in their environment.

The material was so broad that I had no idea how to summarize it into just what I had to know for the boards. And if I zoned out for a few minutes, I had no idea if I missed something crucial or not.

The 7 Reasons Why Traditional Pediatric Conferences Are Broken

To summarize some of the above sentiments, and some of my own, I’ve put together this list of reasons why traditional board review conferences are so flawed. Click Here And Continue Reading…
