“Boards Vitals is an excellent question bank with many difficult questions that prepared me for the ABEM exam. I passed without any difficulty. Thanks BoardVitals!”David Whitmer, MD
The Emergency Medicine re-certification is a fairly lengthy four-step process that includes the Continuous Certification (ConCert) examination. Based on an independent study by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, the mean adjusted scores for the Emergency Medicine Recertification exam was 85.9%. You can take the exam multiple times, but with each subsequent exam, the pass rate was around the same percentage.
The EM ConCert exam is administered electronically at over 200 Pearson Vue centers, and includes approximately 205 MCQs, approximately 15% of which will have images. Note that the number of questions may vary slightly year to year, but that the format consistently does not include the ‘except,’ or other negative construction type questions.
Note that our surveys indicate a strong correlation between the number of practice questions taken and performance on the ConCert re-certification exam. If you’d like more information, please email us at [email protected].
The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBEM OCC continuous certification exam. Additional resources may be available via the AAEM.
