HiYes I am also planning on taking the exam this spring but its hard to know what its all about unlike the ABSITE and written exams here in the US. If any one knows what is the best material to go over please let us know!
i am not in the us. i am in canada. have to give pos this year
Thanks. I am reading Schwartz too but the pocket edition. I plan to do Rush questions. Do you know if POS has one best answer or multiple answers, how mnay questions are there. Is it computer or paper based. I am regiatered for the exam but havn't received letter yet. Where are you located, I am in LA.the exam is april 6th and 7th
You should be getting a letter from RCPSC regarding that. If they don't tell you in the letter it is better to ask them. Call Examinations unit at RCPSC. Have you talked to residents who have taken this last year. Is it percentile pass or percentage. I read there are 300 questions. 150 each in 3 hours.it is multiple choice and paper based. but am worried as someone on this forum said the format might be changing soon............have you heard about this?
How can I get copies of the mock Surgical exams?Hi there. Was wondering if you managed to get any mock Surgical Foundations (previously POS) exam. I will be writing it in end March 2018, and trying to gather previous mock exam questions. Have managed to obtain the University of Toronto's mock Surgical Foundations exams for 2012, 2013 and 2014, and can send them to you.
I hope you don't need them anymore though and have already cleared this exam.
Anyway, would love to receive any mock questions you have.
Thanks in advance, and cheers
