“I used the online BoardVitals and found that the 600+ questions for my specialty were pretty comprehensive with answers to each question and a convenient monitoring of my progress. I could choose as short or long a test as desired and then review missed questions to hone areas requiring more review. It is also quite affordable and perhaps most importantly really preps you for test-taking skills.”Steven Taylor

GI Recertification Exam Info
The Gastroenterology Maintenance of Certification Examination is strictly multiple choice GI questions with the single best answer – focused primarily on patient scenarios. The First-Time Takers Pass Rate in 2018 was 92%. Based on survey findings from the AGA, the best mode of improving performance on the exam is taking more questions.
Beginning in 2019, the ABIM started offering a new two year-assessment option in Gastroenterology called a Knowledge Check-In for physicians to meet their MOC program requirements in lieu of taking the traditional MOC Exam.
What topics are covered on the ABIM Gastroenterology MOC Exam and Knowledge Check-In Assessment?
The BoardVitals Gastroenterology MOC question bank follows the ABIM Gastroenterology MOC Exam Blueprint as follows:
- Esophagus 12%
- Stomach and Duodenum 15%
- Liver 22%
- Biliary Tract 10%
- Pancreas 11%
- Small Intestine 10%
- Colon 20%
Be prepared to see lab results, videos, and images. Our question bank provides these for practice on the relevant media formats. We suggest the Mayo Clinic GI and Hepatology Board Review book to use in conjunction with our question banks. We cite references on many of the questions and suggest a companion GI board book for additional reading.
The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBIM OCC continuous certification exam.
How long is the ABIM Gastroenterology MOC Exam?
The exam is comprised of up to 220 multiple choice questions (MCQ) in single best answer format of which up to 50 are new questions that do not count in the examinee’s score. The exam will take approximately 10 hours which is divided into four sessions. Each session contains up to 60 questions.
This exam is long. We suggest testing yourself with practice questions in timed mode to simulate actual exam conditions. To familiarize yourself with ABIM exam question format, we recommend reviewing the ABIM's Subspecialty MOC exam tutorial.
