A Coordinator's Role in Coaching Trainees for the Boards

A program coordinator does not have medical knowledge to assist his/her trainees in understanding topics on the Board certification exams. However, a coordinator's strengths in identifying weaknesses, being organized, and maintaining deadlines make him/her an excellent assistant coach. These administrative strengths are often weaknesses of the trainee and play a major role in determining if the trainee passes their Board exam. This session will identify steps a coordinator can take to coach his/her trainees when preparing for their Board exams. Through didactic, role-playing, and discussion, coordinators will learn how to assist trainees in designing a personalized study plan by creating an inventory of study materials, using their in-training exam scores and respective Board Blueprint, and setting accountability by scheduling follow-up meetings. We will also discuss sharing test-taking tips with trainees to assist with test anxiety and time management.
