“The questions and answers provided for an overall excellent review of Internal Medicine. I highly recommend this program for a general intensive review of Internal Medicine, an excellent review for the ABIM INTERNAL MEDICINE Boards, and provides for a review by specialty topic at your own pace and convenience. I would highly recommend this program for any Internist interested in keeping up with the new guidelines, etc. Thank you.”Mary Bernadette Galvin

ABIM Internal Medicine MOC Exam Info and Pass Rates
Beginning in 2018, the ABIM started offering a new two year-assessment option called a Knowledge Check-In for physicians to meet their MOC program requirements in lieu of taking the traditional MOC Exam.
The First-Time Taker Pass Rate for the 2018 Internal Medicine MOC Exam was 95%.
What topics are covered on the ABIM Internal Medicine MOC Exam and Knowledge Check-In 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%
- 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.
How many questions are on the ABIM Internal Medicine MOC Exam?
