Internal Medicine Qbank for IM Boards

Why Should I Subscribe?

Choosing the right material for the Internal Medicine Boards (ABIM) preparation is the key to achieving high scores and attaining Internal Medicine board certification/recertification. There are a number of Internal Medicine board review materials on the market to prepare for the Internal Medicine Board exam. From our experience, we have found both the pros and cons in each one of them. The USMLEWorld Internal Medicine Qbank, while retaining the best features, answers all of the shortcomings and also has some new features helpful for the ABIM exams. Please read along for a detailed overview.

Focused Exam Content and State of the art Explanations

We teach you the concepts, which are important not just to pass the IM Boards but to attain the broad base of knowledge needed to be an effective and well-informed practitioner. Our explanations are grounded in evidence-based medicine and widely-accepted procedures/treatment. Every explanation of a question includes a specific "educational objective" that outlines the main concept from that particular question, making the whole concept very easy to remember..

Furthermore, all of our materials are created by professional physician authors who actively practice within various internal medicine subspecialties. Each question in the Internal Medicine Qbank requires a unique and systematic two- to three-step thinking process. Our explanations are concise, yet thorough, which makes them easier to read and memorize.

Benefits to Residency Programs

Internal medicine residency programs have a vested interest in their residents' performance on both the in-training examinations as well as the ABIM certification exam. The results of these training standards reflect the knowledge and competency of patient care given by the residents as well as the quality of education provided by the training hospital. The IM Qbank is an excellent study aide for the in-training examinations as well as the ABIM certification exam. See the Internal Medicine Board Certification Facts for residency in-training examination as a predictor of performance on the Internal Medicine Board Certification Exam.

  • A high first-time pass rate for the ABIM Boards is associated with higher-quality programs, especially amongst those training a high number of foreign medical graduates.
  • According to the ABIM, approximately 85% of test material evaluates synthesis and clinical judgment, leaving only 15% for recall memory questions. The USMLEWorld IM Qbank emphasizes clinical judgment in a two- to three-step process, forcing the student to utilize concepts rather than rote memory.

Benefits to Residents

Residency is both a grueling and rewarding experience. Constant studying is required to improve your knowledge base and clinical skills. The Internal Medicine Qbank will hone your skill in both theoretical and clinical practice. The Qbank is an excellent tool, not only for ABIM certification exam preparation, but studying for your yearly in-training exams, as well. Our concept-based questions require multiple steps in order to reach the correct answer, which forces you to use clinical judgment (and thus better preparing you for the actual board-type questions). This Qbank can improve your knowledge and your in-training exam scores, thus increasing your confidence and proving your competence in medical knowledge and patient care. For those residents preparing for Step 3, the Internal Medicine Qbank is a great supplemental study aide to improve your diagnostic skills and understanding of common diseases.

Benefits to Physicians Seeking Maintenance of Certification (Recertification)

Even the most experienced internal medicine physicians need refreshment on the most current applications of clinical medicine. Our up-to-date, concept-based content enhances your current expertise in all areas of general internal medicine and helps you breeze through ABIM recertification exam day with ease. See the Internal Medicine Board Certification Facts for importance of ABIM recertification.
