In this article we’ll learn about pediatric board review courses being offered in 2019 and learn why live courses are broken. We'll also discuss the pediatric board review course created in 2019 by Pediatrics Board Review (PBR), and we'll share resources and recommendations for those looking into live board review courses.
PBR was created by me, Ashish Goyal. As a pediatrician, I excelled when I increased my score by 160 points on the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) Initial Certification exam. I was then asked by the ABP to write questions for them.
Now, as an author, my mission is to provide the best pediatric board review materials to residents and pediatricians. And I’ve been doing this successfully doing so with PBR since 2011.
As physicians, we're trained to learn "everything” in our field, and we apply the same methodology to how we prepare for an exam. We start from the first sentence and take a top-to-bottom approach.
But these strategies do NOT work when you are studying for the pediatric boards.
That’s why at Pediatrics Board Review, we focus on creating a full, one-stop shop for you to focus your learning on three things:
- The specific topics that will be tested on the exam
- The strategy behind test taking, and how to deconstruct difficult questions with ease.
- The tools, schedules, and systems needed to promote efficiency and accountability
This article will be covering a LOT about what pediatricians just like you need to pass the pediatric boards (and how we have been providing that successfully for the past decade).
The system that we’ve created has been proven to be much more effective (and cheaper) than attending a 4-6 day long course where you're expected to learn everything about pediatrics. And if the thousands of happy pediatricians are any indication, using the PBR Retention Methodology is the way to go (but more on that later).
If you are set on finding a traditional, live pediatric board review course, we do offer some advice and resources to help. Keep reading below to find a list of companies we've compiled who are offering live pediatric board review courses and the cost of attending.
But, if you have 5 minutes, take the time to read this article because it will likely save you time, money, and energy.
Through this article, and through videos like the one below, you will begin to quickly understand why a "traditional" pediatric board review course can lead to failure. PBR is not a traditional board review company, and we focus on helping physicians in ways that have never been done before. In the video below, I share with you the arrival of the NEW 2019 Edition of the PBR Core Study Guide, the NEW 2019 Edition of the Question & Answer books, our NEW Test-Taking Strategies Course, and information around the differences that allow PBR to excel.
