News on the Dermatology Resident CORE Exams

The first group of dermatology residents (557) required to pass 4 CORE Exams administered by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) in order to meet eligibility to take the Applied ABD Certification Exam (“The Boards”) in July had a successful overall pass rate of 98.7%. Seven residents in this cohort have not passed all of their CORE exams. These 7 have the opportunity to pass the remaining CORE examinations during their 5 year board-eligibility period, and if successful they will be able to take the Applied ABD Certification Exam. CORE exams are given three times each year, in February, July, and November. All 4 UTMB PGY4 dermatology residents passed all of their CORE exams on their first attempt.
