Subspecialty Webinars - FPMRS, MFM, REI
Begins in February

We've got a great way to start the New Year. ABC fills the information gap identified by subspecialists frustrated with a deficiency in their oral exam prep. ABC has put together a dynamic team specific to FPMRS, MFM and REI to help you prepare and pass your subspecialty exam. Each subspecialty webinar consists of:
  • 1-hour webcasts on high yield topics
  • Attend live for one or all sessions or learn on your own time by accessing the archives.
  • Each session is focused on reviewing Structured Cases to practice articulation and to grasp key concepts.
