Information about ABFM MOC Recertification

Pass your ABEM boards with Med-Challenger

The American Board of Family Medicine is one of 24 medical specialty boards that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Through ABMS, the boards work together to establish common standards for physicians to achieve and maintain board certification.

Fulfillment of this component requires the successful completion of the One-Day Family Medicine Recertification Examination every 10 years. The ABFM Family Medicine recertification examination is referred to as the Family Medicine Certification Examination. The same examination is delivered to initial certification and continuing certification (family medicine MOC & recertification) candidates.

Beginning in 2019, Diplomates who are currently certified and in the tenth year of certification due to end December 31, 2019, have two options to complete the MOC examination requirement: the One-Day Family Medicine Certification Examination or the Family Medicine Certification Longitudinal Assessment (FMCLA).

Comprehensive family medicine reviews like Med-Challenger FM are suitable ABFM board exam preparation for ABFM Certification and both options of ABFM MOC examinations, including FMCLA review.

What is the format of the ABFM Recertification Exam?

What's the ABFM Continuous Certification Exam and the FMCLA format?

The ABFM Family Medicine Recertification Examination is a test of family medicine knowledge and clinical problem-solving ability relevant to Family Medicine.Appropriate subject areas of the following disciplines are included: Community Medicine; Adult Medicine; Maternity Care; Gynecology; Care of Neonates, Infants, Children and Adolescents; Behavior & Mental Health; the Surgical Patient; and the Older Patient.Elements of the examination include, but are not limited to, diagnosis, management, and prevention of disease. The examination consists of four sections and is a full day in length.

The Family Medicine Recertification Examination is divided into four (4) equal sections of 100 minutes. Each section contains 80 multiple choice questions. The modular exam portion of the examination is contained in the second section of the examination and consists of 40 multiple choice questions over the topic selected.  The second section of the examination will first present the 40 questions over the modular exam topic selected and then 40 questions which cover the breadth of Family Medicine. The modular exam topic will be selected prior to beginning the second section of the examination. Once a modular exam topic has been selected and confirmed, the selection cannot be changed.

What's the format of FMCLA Exams?

What's the format of the Family Medicine Longitudinal Assessment Pilot?

The FMCLA Pilot (Family Medicine Longitudinal Assessment Pilot) is a 300-question examination alternative designed to be more aligned with on-going changes in medicine and adult learning principles. Rather than taking a one-day examination at a proctored test center, you will receive 25 timed (5 minutes), multiple-choice questions over breadth of family medicine each calendar quarter. The questions can be answered via computer or tablet anywhere and can be completed over a maximum 4-year period. As a participant in the pilot, you will be required to meaningfully participate in year 1 by answering a minimum of 80 questions by December 31, 2019 and providing feedback to pilot evaluation surveys. If you meet the meaningful participation requirement, you will continue to receive the 25 quarterly questions until you have answered 300 questions or 4 years have elapsed.

Med-Challenger's ABFM MOC review and the tools inside the Med-Challenger platform make it ideally suited for FMCLA review and FMCLA exam prep.
