EBR Online 2015: Female Reproduction

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 the opportunities to review questions asked to the faculty, compare results from other participants, and read detailed answer explanations, references, and a customized score report.

Target Audience

This continuing medical education activity should be of substantial interest to endocrinologists, internists, and endocrine fellows preparing for the board examination or recertification; or endocrinologists and other health care practitioners seeking a review in endocrinology.
