What are the SOOs? What are SAMPs? Preparing for the CCFP exam
WHAT IS A SOO?
The Simulated Office Orals (SOO) are the oral exam component of the CCFP exam, composed of five 15-minute stations in which the simulated patient is a physician examiner. Sample SOOs can be found at cfpc.ca/soos
We have compiled a list of SOO Success Secrets on our SOO success infographic.
