Osler General Surgery 2022 Online Review ( VIDEOS)
This comprehensive review is designed to update your clinical knowledge base and help you pass your General Surgery exams. Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating current best practice concepts, surgical approaches, and clinical follow-up strategies. As a result, it provides a good review for your ABS written exams and a thorough general surgery review for physicians in practice. In addition, many previous learners have found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and planning strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical approaches for the principal areas covered by general surgeons, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for self-study.

- Discuss non-operative management options for general surgery patients who may not require surgical intervention (e.g., patients with pancreatitis, portal hypertension, immunosuppression, multiple traumas).
- Outline the appropriate use of newer diagnostic and therapeutic methods such as laser-based applications; stereotactic breast biopsy; physiologic testing and evaluation of the GI tract; noninvasive vascular system diagnostic evaluation and invasive vascular interventional techniques; ultrasonography of the head and neck, breast, and abdomen; and endorectal ultrasound.
