Why a Review Course?

The Board of Governors Examination in Healthcare Management (BOG Exam) is comprehensive, consisting of multiple choice questions testing 10 core knowledge areas. To do your best on the exam, you need to be thoroughly prepared, and this 2 ½ day review course will help you. This course will provide you with a breadth of information across all 10 areas, as well as testing strategies, sample questions and a better understanding of the examination's content, structure and scoring.

Whether you use the course to set the foundation for your study or take it as the culmination of your review efforts, upon completion of this course you will be able to determine the areas you have mastered and where further study is needed—all in a systematic and enjoyable manner.
