Pediatric Recertification Exam Info

The Pediatric MOC exam focuses primarily on clinical medicine, and mostly on core topics that present in a typical clinical setting. Our question bank is constructed around the relevant MOC topics.

The Pediatric MOC exam is comprised of approximately 200 multiple-choice questions (MCQ) and is delivered in two timed sections. Each section is two hours long and is administered at computer-based testing centers.

Approximately 5-10% of questions will be accompanied by illustrations, such as x-ray studies and photographs.

The 2012-2015 First-Time Takers Pass Rate for the ABP General Pediatrics MOC Exam was 95%.

To become familiar with computer-based testing, the ABP recommends taking the ABP Online Tutorial.
