Information About the Anesthesiology ADVANCED Exam:

The ABA’s ADVANCED Examination, which candidates take after the successful completion of the BASIC exam and 30 months of satisfactory clinical anesthesiology training, is a cumulative exam designed to assess a mastery of education in anesthesiology. The ADVANCED Examination, like the BASIC, will consist of 250 questions and examinees have 4 hours and 40 minutes to complete the examination. The first ADVANCED examination will be administered in July 2016 due to the new format of ABA Certification; there are no pass rates available.

There are three types of question formats: A-type, R-type, and G sets:

A-type questions are single-best-answer multiple-choice questions that require the application of knowledge rather than simple recall of factual information; these represent the vast majority of questions that will be administered on the ADVANCED examination. R-type questions are multiple-choice items organized into sets that use a single list of response options for a series of clinical scenarios all related to a single theme. G-sets include several lead-in questions that reference a single clinical vignette.

The ADVANCED Exam includes questions that refer to static images. A small number of ADVANCED Exam questions may include short video clips.
