Are you preparing for the ABOto ENT MOC Exam? If you are, you’ll want to make a habit of taking practice questions to refresh your brain on the format of these exams. Here are four to get you started.
How’d you do? Whether you got them all easily or stumbled through the quiz, you’re on the right track to properly prepare for this exam.
The ABOto recertification exam is required ever 10 years and assesses knowledge, judgement, and skills. You’ll answer two sets of 80 questions. The first section will cover clinical fundamentals, and the second non-fundamentals. It is broken down as follows:
The Clinical Fundamentals portion:
- Clinical Outcome Measures/Evidence Based Medicine
- HIPAA and Compliance
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Patient Safety
- Otolaryngology Related General Anesthesia Issues
- Drug/Alcohol Dependence
- Ethics & Professionalism
- Pain Management
- Universal Precautions
The non-Fundamentals question topics are divided into three broad areas:
- Data gathering/Interpretation 30%
- Differential diagnosis/Diagnosis 20%
- Management 35%

The BoardVitals ENT MOC Practice Question Bank features more than 1300 questions with detailed explanations and rationales to act as mini-lectures for the topics.
BoardVitals is the ideal complementary review source for any resident seeking to maximize their board exam review. The otolaryngology questions challenge you to apply your knowledge of frequently-tested ENT principles in a variety of fields, ranging from otology and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery to pediatric otolaryngology and head and neck oncology. Each question is written in a board-style format, and each answer offers a detailed review of key concepts. Otolaryngology residents, myself included, have been waiting for this type of review material to be available for us, and it’s finally here. I highly recommend it!
