Big Change Announced for the 2016 American Board of Dermatology Certification Examination!

Current PGY4 dermatology residents planning to take the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) Certification Examination (“The Boards”) this July encountered added uncertainty about exam preparation when the ABD recently announced that they were changing the content of the examination with about 4 months to go before testing. Forty new questions (“applied knowledge”) out of 285 total questions (14%) will be used to test dermatology knowledge. Fortunately for many of these test takers, they were previously exposed to this new question type during the 2015 and 2016 In-Training Examinations (ITE) given annually by the ABD.
