S049 - Boards Blitz

Monday, March 4; 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Recognize and/or diagnose commonly tested images related to medical dermatology, pediatric dermatology, surgical dermatology, and clinical pathologic correlates.
  • Identify strengths and weaknesses in one's fund of knowledge to better prepare for the ABD certification exam and/or in-training exam and make improvements as needed.


The in-training and board certification exams all require a mastery of a broad breadth of information as dictated by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) – overwhelmed yet? This interactive session will provide key points and tips for identifying and answering questions on the digital image portion of the certification/recertification exams. Attendees will have the opportunity to view numerous digital images with associated questions preparing them for the kodachrome portion of the exam. High-yield study material will also be covered as the images are reviewed. The session will benefit any dermatologist preparing for the ABD certification, recertification, or in-training exam.
