Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) April 06, 2012
Oakstone Publishing, LLC, a leading provider of multi-media educational activities for physicians and dentists, has unveiled DocDecks, a new interactive digital question and answer board preparation program. DocDecks was created to help physician’s seeking specialty certification or recertification to the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and provide physicians with a tool to refresh their knowledge in all areas of specialty-focused clinical medicine.
Developed by Oakstone with the assistance of distinguished faculty for each specialty, the practice exam feature presents review questions to identify weaknesses and learning gaps while allowing the user to refresh their knowledge of anatomic and clinical medicine. The questions are designed to focus on high-yield concepts. And, when relevant, include multiple-choice questions with pictorial references. For practicing physicians in many specialties, these image-related learning experiences will provide a solid review of their specialty as seen in daily practice.
DocDecks can be accessed through most laptop, tablet, and desktop computers with an internet connection. The digital multi-choice test has the ability to record and save answers, giving the user the flexibility to start, stop, and resume the practice test without losing information or previously answered questions.
“We’re very excited to launch DocDecks. This is a valuable study aid that simulates the test environment found in the board examinations,” said Oakstone President and Chief Executive Officer Diane Munson.
The first specialty served by the program is DocDecks in Pathology, available to Pathologists on April 2, 2012. Developed by Oakstone with the assistance of renowned diagnostic pathologist Ivan Damjanov MD, PhD, DocDecks in Pathology will present more than 700 multiple-choice questions and will serve as a resource for physicians to refresh their knowledge in all areas of clinical and anatomic pathology. Included are more than 150 Pictorial references. Plus, DocDecks in Pathology has been designated for 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
“DocDecks in Pathology is an excellent learning tool to help prepare for the American Board of Pathology examination. It is also a great resource for staying current in the area of Pathology.” said Ivan Damjanov MD, PhD. Oakstone anticipates the launch of DocDecks in Internal Medicine, Neurology, and OB/GYN before the end of 2012, with additional specialties planned for the future.
