ABEM Qualifying Exam Features

The ABEM Qualifying Exam contains approximately 305 single-best-answer, standard multiple choice questions. Each question is in paragraph form with an answer set containing one correct answer and three or four incorrect answers.

The exam is divided into two sections or books, each separately timed, and each lasting 3 hours and 10 minutes, separated by a one-hour, scheduled break. The entire exam appointment takes approximately 8 hours to complete with 6 hours and 20 minutes of total testing time.

Each book of the examination consists of both pictorial and non-pictorial multiple choice questions. Pictorial questions refer to stimulus images such as photos of X-rays, ECGs, rhythm strips, pictures, etc. These images will be presented in a separate tab along with the relevant test question on the computer screen. You will need to interpret ultrasound images for pictorial questions on the Qualifying Exam. Two reference documents are available to you during the exam: a list of common abbreviations used in the exam, and a list of normal laboratory values.

ABEM Qualifying Exam Requirements

Candidates seeking ABEM certification must:

  1. Successfully complete an ACGME-accredited EM residency training program
  2. Meet the ABEM Policy on Medical Licensure.

If you graduated from your EM training within the last year, before October 31 you are not required to hold a medical license to take the Qualifying Exam. If you entered a fellowship program within six months of completing your EM residency training and are currently enrolled in the fellowship, you are not required to hold a medical license to take the Qualifying Examination.

If you are not required to hold a medical license, but hold one or more licenses, they must be reported to ABEM and must be valid, unrestricted, and unqualified.

Physicians who have applied for initial certification and have approved applications may register and schedule an appointment for the Qualifying Exam.

Physicians who do not take the first Qualifying Examination they are assigned are considered to have delayed a step in the certification process and will have additional certification requirements before they can register for the examination.
