Sub-Specialty Exam Case List Tip
by Amos Adelowo, MD, FACOG

You will now need to use the case list form which you can access in your ABOG personal page. Your case list must be in the proper format and with the required number of cases. Note: Paper Case List is NOT acceptable. You've come to far to have this all go wrong just because of timing!
We have FPMRS, MFM and REI Faculty on hand to review your case list.

Pondering making New Year's Resolutions?

During this time of New Year's resolutions, why not make gratitude and giving take the place of creating ambitious goals that usually don't last anyway. Consider the following:

Being grateful
- For most of us, if we look around, we will see we have all we need and more. Writing down each day what you are grateful for is a great practice in seeing the many gifts we have in life. Even adversity and painful experiences can be powerful lessons in being thankful. This practice can be life changing - moving you from a life of complaining to a life of kindheartedness and appreciation.

Give to others
- Your time, tithes and offerings go a long way toward paying bills and meeting the tangible needs of your community. Or give to an organization you believe in, especially those smaller organizations low on funding. Beside it promoting cooperation, trust, and social connection, giving has an even greater impact on ourselves. It has the potential to decrease stress, increase oxytocin and overall makes us happier people.

Written Exam Strategy
The significance of your CREOG score

New for 2021, ABOG will now report your score on the Qualifying Exam, but a good indicator of how you will do on the exam is still your CREOG in-service training exam scores. If you're a chief resident, you must use this as a gauge to predict Qualifying board exam performance. Anything less than a 200 score is cause for concern. We can help you create a study plan.
