Family Medicine Certification Exam Pass Rate

As with many of the Medical Specialty exams, there is a strong correlation between the number of practice questions taken and performance on the real exam.

- Ambulatory Family Medicine
- Women’s Health
- Maternity Care
- Emergent/Urgent Care
- Hospital Medicine

Recertification Note: We suggest choosing the topics where you spend most of the time in practice. The exam covers mostly fundamentals, so just through day to day practice you likely know most of the content for a couple of the modules. Geriatrics is one of the most popular areas for a number of reasons.
In addition to the BoardVitals Family Medicine MOC Question Bank, we recommend reviewing the Exam Preparation Videos and Documents on the ABFM Website.
The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBFP OCC continuous certification exam. Additional resources may be available via the AAFP and ACOFP.
