Now that the written boards are done, veterinary radiology residents everywhere are thinking about the oral examination. I have quite a few cases collected on the MIRC site from the Case of the Day category, so I thought I would identify some for practice oral sessions. I highly recommend practicing your oral reports with a mentor or colleague to note what you say and how you structure the report. The art of the oral examination includes thoughtful organization, clarity and succinctness, as well as time management. Here are some suggestions on how to structure your readings.
Try to complete these series of cases in 45 minutes or less. Part of the challenge is to be able to put aside your worries of how you handled the last case and move on to the next one. Make sure to describe the first set of images and your initial differentials before requesting additional images. The answers are available, so make sure you set the view mode to “unknown” before selecting the case list!Â Of course, non-residents are welcome to try their hand at the cases as well. Good luck!
Before doing anything else, quick on the question mark icon to make the cases displayed as unknowns. Otherwise, you will see the answers first!
