Beyond The Boards
Preparing you for tomorrow and beyond...


In an attempt to continue to educate our colleagues, we have been working on producing free podcasts that review some of the commonly tested topics on the anesthesia written and oral board exams.  These podcasts should also be helpful for the seasoned anesthesiologist preparing for the MOCA cognitive exam. 

Dr. Moshiri will review specific topics on a monthly basis.  Some will include a short review of a common keyword, others may include mock oral exams with a brief review of the topics tested.  If there are certain topics which you would like to hear about, or specific mock oral exam scenarios that you would like Dr. Moshiri to discuss please send us an email with your request.  The podcasts are available via iTunes by searching for "Beyond Anesthesia" or they can be downloaded by clicking
