Preparing for the Ob/Gyn Exam

Posted October 18, 2013 by admin

It takes years of study and residencies to prepare for the OB/GYN exam. The American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ABOG) only offers the exam once a year, on the first Monday in June. Do you want to spend another year studying? Or do you want to pass it the first time? Refresh yourself on those years of preparation with Perinatal Resources.

The OB/GYN exam consists of two parts: a written exam, and an oral exam. These both generally cover the same distribution of topics (30% each of obstetrics, gynecology, and general office practice/preventative care, in addition to 10% cross-content questions), but they test each candidate in different ways. The written portion is more about finding the best answer for each question, whereas the oral board will probe deeply into the provided case studies and your personal residency history.

Perinatal Resources offers one of the most comprehensive and simplest ways to prepare for your OB/GYN board examinations. With reviews each fall in both Columbus and Florida, we try to bring the prep to a conveniently central location for most residents in the process of studying.

Both of our comprehensive review programs include case studies at the end of almost every day and sessions targeted toward first time exam-takers. These case of the day studies are very similar to what the exam board uses and are an excellent way to learn how to discuss a case in an open forum with OB/GYN professionals. The prep sessions offer value in the topics they cover, but one of those most valuable things you’ll leave with is a network of peers and professionals that can be used as resources while you study, and beyond.

It’s never too early to start studying. Give yourself plenty of time for the self-guided and assisted review experiences.
