At Specialty Review, you’ll spend six days learning from expert educators who focus on problem-based and foundational review to help you prepare for neonatal board examinations or recertification tests. A highlight of the event is Battle of the Boards, a Jeopardy-style rapid fire team competition that brings a little fun, friendship and food into the mix. But the best part? You can access the conference materials after the event for continued review at home.

“We are so excited to see everyone for our fourth annual Battle of the Boards! It will be a great evening of competition, quizzing and camaraderie,” said David Weisoly, MD, Specialty Review Conference Director. “See you at all Specialty Review 2018!”
