Abstract

Objective: Describe an online system used to collect data, compute statistics, and provide reports for mock oral examinations.

Setting: General surgery residency programs and national surgical conferences. Participants: General surgery residents, program directors, and faculty. Results: System users had very positive attitudes toward the online system in terms of usability and reporting functions. Conclusions: The mock oral exam management online system is a useful tool that eases the burden of managing a mock oral exam session.
