“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! ”Danny Soares

ENT Exam Info
The ABOto Recertification exam is required every 10 years and is commonly known as MOC Part III – Assessment of Knowledge, Judgement, and Skills. Note that the exam is both proctored and closed book. Depending on the area or subspecialty that you practice in, you may be able to opt out of certain question sets.
What topics are covered on the ENT MOC Part III Exam?
According to the ABOto blueprint for the ENT MOC Part III Exam, the exam consists of two components: Clinical Fundamentals and Non-Fundamentals. The questions are drawn from the pool of questions used in the Written Exam and contain only clinically relevant questions.
Three questions on topics all otolaryngologists should know regardless of specialty focus.
Seventy-seven questions on topics specific to otolaryngology specialty areas divided into three broad areas:
- Data gathering/Interpretation 30%
- Differential diagnosis/Diagnosis 20%
- Management 35%
- Surigcal principals
Review the ABOto MOC Part III Exam Blueprint & Guidelines for more information.
The entire exam is made up of 80 questions, however, some exams may contain extra questions that will not count towards the final score.
The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBOO-HNS OCC continuous certification exam.
