Here are some practice quizzes that I’ve made using the amazing PathPresenter website:
Practice Board Exams:
Multiple choice, like the boards. Record your diagnoses on the website, which will grade your answers when you’re done. You can then review your selections with the answer sheet after submission to see the answers to the questions you got wrong.
These were created to mirror the old (“in person”) format (85 slides, for which you have 3.75 hours). Now, there are still the same number of slides and the timing is the same, but it is broken up into 3 sections. On average, you have ~3 min per slide, so, to stay “on pace” you should finish each of these in a little less than 2 hours.
Biannual Resident Slide Quizzes:
Open-ended fill in the blank questions. Record your diagnoses on the response sheet and then compare with the answers.
Some “Interesting Case” Conference Cases:
We have a weekly interesting case conference at UC Davis. Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve been doing this online and sometimes using cases from PathPresenter. Here are some of the unlabeled cases with (fake) histories and then separately the answers so you can quiz yourself.
