Member & Student Member Registration 


Again this year, AAPD in collaboration with the College of Diplomates will be offering Mock Oral Review Interviews. This allows attendees to participate in a simulation of the oral interview with two  examiners. You will be given 15 minutes to present your answer and then 15 minutes for feedback. In the registration process, you will have the opportunity to include this for an additional $100. You will be able to sign up for a specific time slot. Please note attendees are only able to sign up for one mock interview as we are trying to allow as many attendees to be able to participate.  


For those that are attending both Oral Review and Comprehensive Review you will have the ability to sign up for these Mock Oral Review Interviews in the Comprehensive Review registration. These interviews will take place during the lunch hour on Friday September 8, 2023 and Saturday September 9, 2023.
