Tips for the OBGYN Boards:

The Basic Qualifying (Written) Examination

The Written Examination will be composed of objective, single-best answer, multiple-choice questions. It will be possible for all answers to be correct, but you only want to choose the one that is MOST accurate. The questions are designed to be thought provoking and/or problem solving.

Basic Certifying (Oral) Examination

The oral examination will take about one-half day to complete. During this process, your mode and rationale for the clinical care of various patient management problems will be evaluated. The examiners will use the candidate's case list and other hypothetical cases during the exam. Some visual aids may be used as well. The knowledge required for passing the Oral Examination is similar to what was incorporated in the Written Exam. You must be able to demonstrate to the Board that you have acquired the capability to independently perform major gynecologic operations, spontaneous and operative obstetric deliveries, manage any complications and perform essential diagnostic procedures that are required of consultants in the fields of gynecology, obstetrics and women's health. Once your exam is complete, your examining team will turn a report in to the Board of Directors and they will vote as to whether you have passed or failed.

Good luck on the exam!
