Candidate Testimonials

The following testimonials are from actual, successful candidates of the Part 2 Examination.

"I originally assumed the exam was strictly about knowledge - that is not the case. It is as much about presentation and communication as it is about factual information. That is why you must polish your presentation skills."

"Do simulated practice sessions with board certified anesthesiologists who are familiar with the structure of the exam. Take feedback and continue practicing."

"Speak clearly and get to the point, be organized and give the most important information or options first, then go to details. Be calm and professional."

"For every anesthetic you administer, articulate to yourself WHY you do everything you do (including intuitive, routine, and simple things). Every drug, every monitor, every dial, every pre-op question - force yourself to answer WHY."

"I knew that the set up of the test was a unique experience that made a lot of my colleagues extremely stressed and nervous. I knew that I had to stay calm and focus on the objective. I found the test to be very fair, and my examiners pleasant and respectful. Some of my colleagues thought the examiners were "out to get you", but I found this to be very untrue."
