It is our desire to provide a meaningful, relevant and well-supported educational experience for each assistant, regardless of his/her experience level. Please read the following important OMSA course information. Once you are registered in an OMSA course, more detailed information will be Mailed to you in a “Confirmation of Registration” packet.
- Format for the OMSA course:
1. Didactic self-study curriculum composed of narrated PowerPoint Presentation videos to be viewed on-line during a three-month period prior to the weekend seminar. These videos are divided by Systems: e.g. Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Endocrine, Immune, etc. Each module will have a short on-line quiz that must be completed before continuing to the next module. After viewing the videos and completing the quizzes, students will be required to take an on-line Pre-test to ensure that they understand the material that was presented.
2. We utilize chat and forum technology to provide instructor feedback and extra help for students who are struggling with various concepts. The faculty monitoring the forums are oral surgeons who are CALAOMS OMSA Committee members.
3. At a two-day weekend seminar we present a review of the material learned in the on-line self-study curriculum. The weekend culminates in a final exam.
OMSA Summer 2018 course registrants: Please read before registering!
The OMSA course curriculum has been updated. We have integrated the didactic self-study curriculum with the information given at the weekend seminar.
The on-line self-study portion contains narrated PowerPoint Presentation lectures divided by “systems” into several modules. At the end of each module there will be a short quiz to ensure that you understand the material presented before moving on to the next module.
After viewing the videos and completing the quizzes, you will be required to take an on-line Pre-test to ensure that you understand the material that was presented.
We will also utilize chat and forum technology to provide instructor feedback and extra help for students who are struggling with various concepts. The faculty monitoring the forums will be oral surgeons who are OMSA Committee members of CALAOMS.
The videos that you will view during the on-line self-study portion of the course will NOT be shown at the weekend seminar. At the weekend seminar, we will present a review of the material learned in the on-line self-study curriculum.
The weekend will culminate in a final exam as usual.
