Abstract ID: 14847 Title: Preparing for the ABR Therapy Physics Boards: Part III (Oral Exam)
Preparing for Part III (Oral Exam) of the ABR Therapy Physics boards is more than just studying as much
material as possible. There will always be material that is missed and gaps in one’s knowledge. Therefore
it is crucial to understand how the parts of the material relate to each other and to the clinical experience
in order to fill those gaps. Part III presents its own challenges compared to the other written exams. It not
only requires experience with clinical procedures but also the ability to explain orally how they are
performed and what they mean. One must be able to easily and confidently respond to oral questions
about all aspects of working in the clinic and clearly explain why those clinical methods and procedures
are performed that way. This talk is not a comprehensive review of all required study material. Instead it
focuses on the required experiences, skill sets, and study methods that are needed to pass Part III of the
board exam.

Gain a list of clinical experiences needed for the exam
