Course Description:  Find out what the Board examiners like and don't like when they review your portfolio! This course is designed to aid Board-eligible candidates and their mentors in creating a passing case history portfolio. Too many hours go into the development of a case history portfolio to have it rejected. Examples of good portfolios, marginal portfolios and ugly (those not likely to pass) will be presented. Updates on the latest requirements of the Board, as well as information on finding tips and ideas on the web, will be presented to the participants. Complete explanation of case requirements will also be provided in detail. This course is a must for those getting ready to submit their portfolios in September.  

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Locate any and all pertinent information about the portfolio examination.
  • Describe the quality of cases needed to pass this part of the examination.
  • Explain the radiograph requirements of a winning portfolio
