Chapter 2: Comprehensive Objective Examination

  • After successfully sitting the Principles of Surgery examination in their second year and completion of the five year residency programs, residents are eligible to sit the comprehensive objective examination in Otolaryngology.
  • Comprehensive objective examinations make it possible to obtain a more complete evaluation of the candidate's strengths and weaknesses.
  • The important feature of comprehensive objective examinations is that candidates do not need to pass the written component in order to take the oral component. Success or failure is based on consideration of all components of the examination.
