Board Case Oral Exam (BCOE)

The web-based BCOE exam will be conducted live with two examiners.  The exam is an assessment of the examinee's evaluation and treatment plan for one case provided by the ABO. This involves one complete set of case records presented to the examinee to evaluate and treatment plan. 

 

The BCOE Examinee Worksheet  will be provided for the case which contains four major areas that will be discussed by the examiners. The BCOE is an oral exam; therefore, this worksheet will not be graded.
