ABIM Internal Medicine Exam Info

Pass Rate

The First-Time Takers Pass Rate in 2015 for the Internal Medicine MOC Exam was 88%.The difficulty is knowing the full scope of the material. The content on the exam is generated from program directors and certified practitioners who are surveyed about the most relevant and most common topics. Our question bank is constructed in a similar fashion – we regularly survey our writers to make sure that we are covering the correct material. We not only acquire the best content, but also update our question banks on a monthly basis.

Exam Format

The exam is comprised of 240 multiple choice questions (MCQ) in single best answer format. Of the 240 questions, 40 are new questions that will not count towards the candidate's score. The exam will take approximately 10 hours which is divided into four sessions. Each session contains up to 60 questions.

Be prepared to see lab results, photographs (especially for dermatological conditions), x-rays, and ECGs.

To familiarize yourself with ABIM exam question format, we recommend reviewing the ABIM's Internal Medicine MOC exam tutorial.

The BoardVitals Internal Medicine MOC question bank follows the ABIM Internal Medicine MOC Exam Blueprint as follows:

  • Allergy and Immunology 2%
  • Cardiovascular 15%
  • Dermatology 3%
  • Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism 10%
  • Gastroenterology 10%
  • Geriatric Syndromes 3%
  • Hematology 4%
  • Infectious Disease 10%
  • Medical Oncology 6%
  • Miscellaneous 1%
  • Nephrology and Urology 6%
  • Neurology 4%
  • Obstetrics and Gynecology 3%
  • Ophthalmology 1%
  • Otolaryngology and Dental Medicine 1%
  • Psychiatry 3%
  • Pulmonary Disease 8%
  • Rheumatology and Orthopedics 10%

Note that the exam outline is structured around the topics most commonly encountered. For example, since Cardiovascular Disease is one of the leading killers / more common conditions, it is tested heavily at 15%. The MOC ABIM exam is meant to focus on the most general conditions possible – don’t spend your time chasing the more esoteric topics if you are short on study time.

The BoardVitals question bank is structured to cover all of these topics in relative percentage to prevalence on the exam.

The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBIM OCC continuous certification exam. Additional resources may be available via the ACP.
