opportunities to apply for funding (up to $1,500) to
promote their ideas for trainee wellness and resiliency.

Transfusion

The faculty put on the first mock Objective Structured
Clinical Examination (OSCE) day to help senior
residents prepare for the new applied board certification
exam, which the ABA plans to launch in 2018. The mock
OSCEs assessed communication, professionalism,
and technical skills with a nine-station circuit. Each
OSCE encounter was eight minutes long, with four
minutes between stations to review the next scenario.
The program complements the mock structured oral
exam sessions that have been offered for many years.
Residents gave positive feedback to the new mock
OSCE experience. Faculty members are now planning
the 2018 mock OSCE program for senior residents.
