According to the ABIM Nephrology MOC Examination Blueprint, the purpose of the Nephrology Recertification exam is to assess whether a certified nephrologist has maintained competence and relevancy in the knowledge and judgment required for practice.
The Nephrology MOC exam format consists of 240 single-best-answer multiple-choice questions, of which 40 are non-scored new questions. Most questions describe patient cases that take place in outpatient or inpatient settings as appropriate to a typical Nephrology practice as well as the the tasks performed by physicians in the course of practice. It is also recommended for candidates to familiarize themselves with the question format in advance with the Subspecialty MOC Exam Tutorial.
The Nephrology MOC exam is approximately 10 hours long and is divided into four sessions with breaks in between each session.
