    Efficiently prepare for maintenance of certification exams with this one-weekend course taught by the experts who wrote the practicing ophthalmologists curriculum. Whether you plan to take the Demonstration of Ophthalmic Cognitive Knowledge (DOCK) exam or participate in the new Quarterly Questions pilot program, the MOC Exam Review Course provides a convenient and effective way to prepare.

    Why Attend

    • The MOC Exam Review Course is one of the best and most efficient ways to prepare for MOC exams. 
    • Learn from expert instructors. The distinguished faculty has guided thousands of ophthalmologists to DOCK exam success – and they wrote the course curriculum using the ABO’s exam outline as a guideline.
    • Review things you don’t see in daily practice. Instructors will refresh you on all areas covered on the DOCK exam. The core ophthalmic knowledge day is especially helpful for subspecialists.

    What’s Included

    Specialized full day instructional sessions you can choose to match your practice emphasis and DOCK exam selection.

    • Course materials:
      • Course curriculum (download free PDFs or purchase print copies)
      • On demand audio/video recording of each session for which you register (includes downloadable audio only files for listening on the go)
      • Individual results for pretest and post-test offered for each session (optional and not required to claim CME)
    • Continental breakfast and lunch each day of the course
    • CME credits (self-assessment)
