Anesthesiology Part 1 Exam

With The #1 Anesthesiology Part 1 Board Review

Live Course

Chicago, IL November 12-16, 2014
Chicago, IL May 13-17, 2015

Dear Colleague,

Our Anesthesiology Part 1 Board Review is completely redesigned into modules that include all keywords covered on the exam. The enhanced course provides a comprehensive and laser-focused review of the exam topics. The course comes in two versions - online and live - to match your personal learning style and your schedule.

  • Start Studying Now: The Online Course is available immediately, so you can begin your studies today. Because you can access all the latest course lectures and practice exams anytime, anywhere, and on any device, you can turn any spare minute into study time.
  • Attend an Interactive and Immersive 5-Day Live Course: If you find it difficult to carve out daily study time, the live course allows you to review all course material in a concentrated timeframe in a classroom setting. Additionally, it provides you opportunity to interact with expert faculty and your peers. To support your board preparation during and long after the live event, you also receive online access to a recorded version of all lectures starting the first day of the live event.

Whichever course delivery method you choose – online or live – you receive the same proven learning experience and materials used by hundreds of Anesthesiologists to prepare for and successfully pass their Anesthesiology Part 1 Board Exam. Here's how it works:

High-Yield Content

  • Laser-Focused Lectures: The Pass Machine Course is comprised of hundreds of short, easily-digestible modules, each of which reflects exam topics mapped to the ABA® Anesthesiology Part 1 Exam blueprint. The modules are organized into lectures covering all related exam “keywords”. Thus, you effectively review every required exam topic and nothing else, acquiring increased mastery of the material in less time.
  • The “QBL” Method: To ensure pinpoint exam relevancy, the lectures use a method called “Question-Based Learning.” Lectures are constructed from a series of board-style multiple-choice questions, each coupled to a mini-lecture on that question’s topic.
  • Board-Experienced Faculty: Lectures are presented by faculty experienced in teaching for board preparation. The two levels of medical editing ensure every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and 100% board-relevant.
  • CME Accreditation: Earn 37.5 AMA/PRA Category 1 CME Credit(s)TM by participating. Your annual employer-provided educational funds may be used to cover the costs of this CME activity.
iPhone App

Anytime, Anywhere Access

  • Always-on Convenience:The Pass Machine course is optimized for 24/7 online access from any computer, smartphone, or tablet device so you can watch the lectures and take practice exams whenever you have a free moment.
  • Unlimited Repeat Viewing: The course permits unlimited access to all course materials for 18 months from purchase. And you have the option of viewing the recorded lectures in any order and as many times as you wish.
  • Lecture Viewing Options: You can choose the full viewing option (that displays the lecture slides synchronized to the video of the speaker) or the streaming audio only option that provides you the flexibility to listen at your convenience while driving or exercising.
  • Detailed Printed Syllabus: The large course syllabus includes all the course lecture material, including images, which is formatted specifically to help you follow along the lectures or to use independently.

Board-Style Practice Exams

  • Deep Question Bank: You can test your exam preparedness by answering the hundreds of board-style multiple-choice questions (MCQ) included with your course. Questions carefully follow the board content outline, so each one advances your mastery of exam content.
  • Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the boards test you. Learn how to answer questions in the board exam format. It’s as close as you can get to the real exam!
  • Optimized for Learning: The MCQs include detailed, referenced explanations. That way you’re not just testing your knowledge – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every board-style question.

Turn Worry Into Action - Register Now

If you want peace of mind, then make a guaranteed investment right now in The Pass Machine®, a proven, comprehensive and laser-focused board review course.

If you purchase the live course, you may attend one upcoming live course each subsequent time you take and fail the exam. The guarantee expires in the event the exam for which this course is designed is no longer offered by the certifying board.

No. Course options and upgrades are non-tuition related. Therefore, these fees are not included in any guarantee-related refund payment made under the terms of the Triple Trust Guarantee.
