Demystifying the PA Boards

A three-day, concentrated, “smart study” approach to give you what you need to pass the PANCE/PANRE!
This conference is for people who want a fresh approach to CME and board review

There are a number of certification or recertification programs that claim to be “comprehensive;” these conferences are typically four or five, full-day conferences. If you need a complete full review of medicine, these programs are valuable. There are also a number study guides or books that provide a comprehensive study approach and material. For some, this is the right approach for them. Then there are conferences for people that need “the edge.” By “the edge” we mean the study tips and tactics to understand the most amount of material in the shortest period of time.  Our system of learning is “smart learning,” teaching you to get the most information in the shortest period of time without cramming. At CME4Life, we maximize your mind and help you win the game!

The future of learning – while you prepare to pass your boards

Our three-day program utilizes the Audience Response System. You will be asked board review questions during the lectures and then at four different times throughout the conference, you will provide your answers by a control in your hands. You will then receive anonymous feedback about your understanding of board questions and key concepts, which will aid in learning. This is the future of learning!  You will learn faster and retain the information longer by being an active learner!

Also included is:

  • 3 months of access to our streaming board review videos ($262 Value)
  • PDF version of our flashcard questions and answers.
  • PDF version of John’s mnemonic book.
  • PDF version of syllabus plus the ability to download one week prior to conference.
