LSU’s 43rd Annual OMS Review course
Saturday-Thursday, November 5-10, 2016
The LSU OMS Review Course is designed specifically for oral and maxillofacial surgery practitioners and residents who desire a comprehensive review that focuses on all phases of oral and maxillofacial surgery. It emphasizes critical areas of surgery with scientific support and prepares surgeons and residents for specialty examinations. All lectures stress the techniques used and the scientific justifications for those techniques. This educational activity was developed based on previous course evaluations, input from course leadership, advisory committee input, and a review of current issues and needs in the fields of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
New to this year’s Review Course were Case Format Presentations. These presentations will mimic the educational style of resident quizzing on rounds and during conferences and oral examinations.
