Brief History and Needs Assessment
In fact, I have taken it 3 times, just to keep up to date on everything that is relevant and important in the field. I find the course extremely useful have taken it 4 times in 10 years.
I have been practicing exclusively advanced interventional endoscopy over these 10 years. Taking the course has allowed me to maintain reasonable contact with other GI disciplines.
My wife made me go as I was reluctant to spend so much time away from family and work, but what a great decision! It was invaluable in directing me along a study plan.
Having been in practice for 10 years, it was great to be able to review such a broad swath of material so deeply. I really focused on all elements of the course and having to take the exam really forced me to be attentive.
I would recommend it every years as a refresher. Their post-graduate courses are nice but this blows those away. I am still preparing to take my recert exam in May , but I feel the Steinberg Course has allowed me to identify the areas I need to focus on to direct my study time and use it wisely.
I used the Steinberg Course for my certification exam and did better than I expected on that exam. I feel the tools I have picked up during the recent course will help me feel more confident for this upcoming exam.
The Steinberg course was a comprehensive summary that helped tie things together after a 3 year gastroenterology fellowship. It probably over-prepares you for passing the actual boards, but I would highly recommend it for the overall education and review prior to entering into the workplace.
Very thorough and helpful. I was unable to attend the course, so I bought the DVD and syllabus from your web site, and went through it several times and listened to the CDs in my car. It was a great way to organize my preparation for the exam and I am extremely appreciative for how well the course helped me prepare for the exam.
I will continue to attend the course to update my knowledge of Gastroenterology. I think that when people take your practice tests, they should be warned to absolutely practice at the speed of the test and check answers afterward so they get used to the pace of the exam.
I am using what I learned in the course daily: I think it is a study course that absolutely increases the quality of care delivered to our patients.
I begrudgingly admit that in preparing for my recert, I learned a lot. Stephen M Mulrooney M. It was a good review for me especialy before the recert exam. The lecturers made it worth my while. I will take it again. The Steinberg Board Review is an excellent review course. It was very organized with excellent speakers.
The hours are long but necessary in order to pack as much information in as few days as possible. It was a great way to prepare for physicians who don't have time. I had an excellent experience with the Board Review course this fall. I found it to be focused, concise and clinically relevant. I thought the course was well designed in terms of time and topics. The information provided was up to date and complete.
The faculty and refreshments were excellent. Steinberg is a warm host and runs the meetings well. I really cannot think of any meaningful improvements. I have taken your online course as part of my preparation for the British Royal College speciality certificate exam in Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
In short, I passed the exam straight after the course and got certified, thanks to you. The lectures were great. The British exam is some how different in flavour, however after carefully going through your course, I had no problems answering the British questions.
Thanks again and god bless you. Very comprehensive exam questions that covered the entire gastroenterology and hepatology board exam syllabus. The standard of the questions are equivalent of the board exams as well as those sitting for the UK Specialty Certificate for Gastroenterology. I passed the exam by going through the whole syllabus on the Steinberg Board Review in Gastroenterology and listening to the lecture on the CD every morning and evening driving to and back from work.
The contents in the syllabus are also useful to prepare for presentation related to gastro and hepatology Thank you very much. Edgar, MD James V.
