This past weekend, several NUHS students carpooled to Daytona for a part 4 boards review. The Part 4 boards exam was held Saturday, Nov 11, and we all tried to absorb as much information as we could to best prepare for this exam. The Irene Gold Part 4 Boards Prep is renowned for its comprehensive approach to board exam preparation, and this weekend lived up to its reputation. From the moment we stepped into the intensive sessions, it was clear that the instructors were dedicated to providing us with the tools and insights necessary to excel in the upcoming exam.

One of the highlights of the weekend was the in-depth discussion surrounding the process of completing a history case exam. The instructors guided us through the intricacies of taking a thorough patient history, emphasizing the importance of asking the right questions to elicit comprehensive information. We delved into the nuances of identifying red flags, recognizing patterns and connecting the dots to arrive at a precise diagnosis. Physical exams and orthopedic exams took center stage as we navigated through the weekend. The instructors left no stone unturned, ensuring that we not only understood the techniques but also comprehended the indications for positive exams. We practiced with precision, learning to interpret the subtleties of patient responses and refining our ability to discern clinically relevant information. The emphasis on setting up adjustments added another layer to our learning experience. The instructors provided insightful tips and tricks, drawing from their experiences to guide us. This hands-on experience was invaluable. It was also inspiring to see so many students all honing down on their hands-on skills in one room.
The companionship among NUHS students during this intensive weekend was also a testament to the supportive community fostered within our academic environment. The collaborative spirit elevated the learning experience, as we shared insights, clarified doubts and motivated each other to strive for excellence. A group of us stayed in an Airbnb and, in the evenings, played board games, quizzed each other on medical conditions, and watched movies. It was a very mentally tiring weekend for us, but I’m hoping it’ll have prepared us well for this board exam. As I reflect on the invaluable insights gained, I am very grateful for the opportunity to have participated in this preparatory event.
To all those students who participated in Part IV boards this past weekend, Best Wishes for Great Results!
