The CAQ in Pediatric Anesthesia is now in the examination development stage. For those who are interested in helping with examination questions please see the webpage for further details.

Depending on the interest shown, the Board is thinking about taking the CAQ in Critical Care Medicine out of dormancy. This must be approved by the Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists and a Job Task Analysis (JTA) must be performed. More will follow as it becomes available.

Negotiations have been finalized with the hotel in Tulsa for the examinations in August. Information will be disseminated in the near future. Any further questions, please feel free to contact Jessica at the office.

The third 2014 OCC study module on Pediatric Anesthesia has been uploaded to the webpage.
