Endocrine Board Review (EBR) is an essential course for endocrinologists preparing to take the boards or practicing physicians seeking an intensive knowledge assessment. The virtual program is designed as a mock exam, with rapid-fire case-based questions emulating the format and subject matter of the ABIM's Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism Certification Examination.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this virtual course, learners should be able to:

  • Demonstrate enhanced medical knowledge and clinical skills across all major areas of endocrinology
  • Apply knowledge and skills in diagnosing, managing, and treating a wide spectrum of endocrine disorders
  • Successfully complete the board examination for certification or re-certification in the subspeciality of endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism.

The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent planners with relevant financial relationships from planning or delivery of content, but rather to provide learners with information that allows them to make their own judgments of whether these financial relationships may have influenced the educational activity with regard to exposition or conclusion. The Endocrine Society has reviewed all disclosures and resolved or managed all identified conflicts of interest, as applicable.

The information presented in this activity represents the opinion of the faculty and is not necessarily the official position of the Endocrine Society.

Use of professional judgment: 
The educational content in this activity relates to basic principles of diagnosis and therapy and does not substitute for individual patient assessment based on the health care provider’s examination of the patient and consideration of laboratory data and other factors unique to the patient. Standards in medicine change as new data become available.

Drugs and dosages:
When prescribing medications, the physician is advised to check the product information sheet accompanying each drug to verify conditions of use and to identify any changes in drug dosage schedule or contraindications.


The Endocrine Society has determined that disclosure of unlabeled/off-label or investigational use of commercial product(s) is informative for audiences and therefore requires this information to be disclosed to the learners at the beginning of the presentation. Uses of specific therapeutic agents, devices, and other products discussed in this educational activity may not be the same as those indicated in product labeling approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Endocrine Society requires that any discussions of such “off-label” use be based on scientific research that conforms to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection, and data analysis. Before recommending or prescribing any therapeutic agent or device, learners should review the complete prescribing information, including indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, and adverse events.


The Endocrine Society will record learner’s personal information as provided on CME evaluations to allow for issuance and tracking of CME certificates. The Endocrine Society may also track aggregate responses to questions in activities and evaluations and use these data to inform the ongoing evaluation and improvement of its CME program. No individual performance data or any other personal information collected from evaluations will be shared with third parties.

Continuing Medical Education (CME)

Endocrine Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Endocrine Society designates this other activity for a maximum of 21 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activities.

While offering CME credits noted above, this program is not intended to provide extensive training or certification in the field.

Maintenance of Certification (MOC)

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 21 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) MOC program.

It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education

The European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) and the American Medical Association (AMA) signed an agreement of mutual recognition of CME credits between Europe and the USA whereby:

European physicians attending an event in the USA had their credits recognized in Europe and American physicians attending an event in Europe had their credits recognized in the USA.

The Endocrine Society designates this educational activity for a maximum of 21 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Each medical specialist should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. These credits can be converted by the EACCME into European CME credits and/or into National credits by the European National Authorities.
