2014 Endocrine Board Review Course

San Francisco, CA US
September 2, 2014 to September 3, 2014

Preparing for the Certification or Maintenance of Certification Exam?

Hilton San Francisco Union Square
San Francisco, California
September 2-3, 2014

Unlike other board preparation meetings, the Endocrine Society's Board Review Course offers a comprehensive mock-exam format, with case-based ABIM-style questions forming the bulk of the presentations. Each section follows the ABIM blueprint for the board exam, covering the breadth and depth of the certification/recertification examination. But you won't just get a right or wrong answer—each case will be discussed in detail, with the correct and incorrect answer options reviewed. You'll also have opportunities to ask questions directly to the faculty, and review detailed answer explanations, references, and a customized score report.

Target Audience

The mock exam at EBR appeals to endocrine fellows who have completed or are nearing completing of their fellowship, and are preparing to sit the board certification exam. Practicing endocrinologists may appreciate the EBR's comprehensive self-assessment of endocrinology either to prepare for recertification, or to update their practice.
