    I passed...my advice

    Advertisements



    I passed and recieved my ECFMG Certificate yesterday. I took the exam Nov 6, 2005 in LA.

    My advice....
    1. Practice, practice, practice - this is the key. You have to come into the room acting like you know what you are doing. Don't come in like you've never interviewed and examined a patient before. Since time is of essence, do very minimal PE (heart, lung, then specific problem). This will allow you to spend more time asking questions (This is where the bulk of the points are)
    2. Books - FA is enough. If you want more cases, do USMLEWorld. I used both, but FA was more than enough
    3. For those who don't speak english well, speak slowly and loud. Most importantly since say very little and be specific. Don't try to elaborate, talk story, or explain alot...keep everything "short and sweet". As long as you ask "LIQOR AAA" , "PAM HUGS FOSS" , greet & close your encounter; you will be fine.
    4. Study the cases by systems. ie. practice all lung cases, then all cardio cases, then all abd cases, etc. You'll notice a pattern on questioning and perfoming the PE.
    5. Study no more than 3 weeks for this exam.

    OSCE examiners organized their checklists to insure that you are a thourough, safe, efficient, attentive, caring, and clever physician. They are well trained to pick up actors who show to be like that wanted physican and not make them feel that you are as that in your real practice.
    This is a key point to get scores for communication skills and professional behaviour.
    They want you to perform just like your driving authority wants to drive.
    Tell me, did you learn to drive to pass the driving test only, or you wanted to be a safe efficient driver?
