The combination of an in-person learning experience and APEX’s online review course is the perfect one-two punch to crush the NCE and SEE.
Although our online course has everything you need to pass boards, we understand that many students want an extra edge as they prepare.
If you want to learn from a fresh perspective, get additional support, interact with your peers, and take your learning to the next level, then Boards Bootcamp is for you.
Two-day live event that's only available to APEX students
Meals and snacks included in the cost of your registration

Quick 25-minute presentations focus on high-yield concepts you need to succeed on boards.
These aren’t basic review lectures! This content strategically supplements our online review course by integrating all four domains of the NCE content.

Follow along in class with color-printed handouts.
Compete with your peers in our anesthesia quiz bowl at the end of the event. Win prizes and strive for the glory and prestige of winning the bowl!
