Mock Board Examinations

Tremendous thanks to all of our 2016 Mock Board Examiners - we couldn't do it without them!

Tremendous thanks to all of our 2016 Mock Board Examiners – we couldn’t do it without them!

One of the biggest events in the academic calendar for our Perio residents is the annual mock Board examinations, when our regular faculty, affiliate faculty and special guests join together to spend a day preparing the students for the American Board of Periodontology oral examination. Each third year resident has the opportunity to be examined on 6 different cases with 6 different examiners, while our second year residents are examined and observe cases, and the first years observe only.

The examinations are fun but tough, and after a long day everyone (examiners and residents alike) is glad to relax and enjoy happy hour together at a nearby restaurant. This year we had glorious weather – what a finish to another year of Mock Boards!

The sun was out and the view from the deck of Eastlake Bar & Grill was hard to beat - so was the company last Friday!
