Program Description

This is module 2 of 5 in the Rutgers PANCE/PANRE Review Course. It covers the Pulmonology, Ophthalmology, and Otorhinolaryngology organ systems, as well as topics in Pediatrics. Remember that each module is separately accredited so you can complete all, a few, or just one.

This web-based review course is based on our highly successful live course. Each lecture has been carefully planned to ensure that your valuable time will be well spent to optimize your performance on the PANCE/PANRE. Here are a few reasons why we believe this course is valuable:

  • All topics on the NCCPA examination blueprint are covered.
  • Post-test examination questions are challenging and encourage peak performance on the examination.
  • Lecturers are experienced PA educators who have prepared graduates to achieve high pass rates and exceptional exam scores.
An important note: The final CME test will cover aspects of each of the presentations within this module. Therefore you will need to review all content before taking the test. However, you can start to listen to a program and if you can’t finish you can come back to where you left off. So you do not have to complete the entire module at the same time.

It is our hope that by providing these online courses, we can help you achieve success. With that in mind, please click below for some pointers and additional tools to review before you begin.
