ABIM Internal Medicine Longitudinal Assessment & Pass Rate

The First-Time Taker Pass Rate for the 2021 Internal Medicine MOC Exam was 95%.
What topics are covered on the ABIM Internal Medicine MOC Exam and Longitudinal Assessment?
According to the ABIM Internal Medicine MOC Exam Blueprint, the exam covers the following topics:
- Allergy and Immunology 2%
- Cardiovascular 15%
- Dermatology 3%
- Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism 10%
- Gastroenterology 10%
- Geriatric Syndromes 3%
- Hematology 4%

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.
How many questions are on the ABIM Internal Medicine MOC Exam?
The exam is comprised of up to 220 multiple choice questions (MCQ) in single best answer format. Of the 220 questions, 50 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.
Be prepared to see lab results, photographs (especially for dermatological conditions), x-rays, and ECGs.
