This session was organised with the aim of providing clarity and information about the change in pattern and format in the examination structure for certification in cardiothoracic surgery administered by the National Board of Examinations. This session was engaged by Dr. O. P Yadava & Dr. M.A Geelani, two senior cardiothoracic surgeons of our fraternity and noted examiners. Participating faculty also included Dr. Pradeep Narayan and Dr. S.V Srikrishna. This session was organised for the welfare of students and residents, with the intent to address concerns, questions and provide clarity on the format of objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) - a change in effect with the changing times of COVID-19, as the NBE describes to aid in the safety of examinees and patients.
The session was aired as a Live Masterclass on 29th August 2020.
