Dermatology MOC Exam Tips
Note that all Dermatology recertification exams are offered through the Pearson Vue testing centers and there is a time limit on the exam of 3 hours. This is a fairly fast paced exam and we suggest using our question bank in timed mode with 1 minute per question in order to prepare.
There is a strong correlation with the number of practice questions taken and performance on the Medical Specialty exams. We suggest using the question bank in both timed and review mode, and reviewing the explanation, even if you score the question correctly.
The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBD OCC continuous certification exam. Additional resources may be available via the AAD and AOCD.
Dermatology MOC Exam Info
The MOC Exam includes 2 components:
- General Dermatology Module: 100 clinical images each accompanied by a question for the most likely diagnosis among 5 distractors
- Secondary Module: 50 Multiple-Choice Questions consisting of a mix of images and written questions in single best answer format; Candidate selects from the following options: Surgical Dermatology, Pediatric Dermatology, Dermatopathology, and Medical Dermatology
In addition to the BoardVitals Dermatology MOC Question Bank, be sure to review the MOC Question Pool portion of the ABD website at least 6 months in advance of the examination.
A list of 150 conditions from which the image questions will be drawn will be available in your ABD profile after you logon.
Please note: The Dermatology MOC Exam ONLY uses image-based questions.
