The ABOG certification examinations are taken after the completion of an OB-GYN residency program. They consist of a written and oral examination. The qualifying examination tests the ability of physicians to demonstrate skills necessary to apply the appropriate knowledge to the management of clinical problems. It consists of single-best answer, multiple-choice questions. Many of the questions are constructed to be thought provoking and problem-solving. For most questions, all possible answers may be plausible, but only one answer is the most correct. The certifying examination requires physicians to submit patient cases in which questions will be developed from. Approximately 30% of the exam will be in the area of Obstetrics, 30% in Gynecology, 30% in Office Practice and Women’s Health, and 10% in Cross Content. Questions will test your ability to: 1. Develop a diagnosis, including the necessary clinical, laboratory, and diagnostic procedures; 2. Select and apply proper treatment under elective and emergency conditions; 3. Prevent, recognize, and manage complications; an 4. Plan and direct follow-up and continuing care.
