HOTSEATS: (disponible en français jeudi soir)
We will be offering HOTSEATS sessions with a choice of a session being held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. These sessions will allow small groups to take cases in a rapid fire format in order to prepare for the type of cases that are frequently encountered on the OSCE portion of the RCPSC Diagnostic Radiology Exam. All sessions will present a standard set of cases covering all areas of radiology that would be expected on the Royal College OSCE Exam. Each evening session is the same. Interested participants should sign up for only ONE.
