ABC can review your Case List

Case List Tip

For subspecialists preparing for their general boards

If you haven't already, make sure to prioritize entering your off-specialty and office lists. These might need extra attention because they differ from what you're used to. Don't spend too much time perfecting your specialty case list – remember, you're taking the general boards. Also, don't assume the examiners will know your specialty and cut you some slack. They only see their section of the exam, so if you're a GYN ONC, for instance, your OB examiners won't know you're an oncologist. Be prepared for anything.

If you need help reviewing your case list, contact Melissa Krauss. Remember, case lists won't be accepted after July 17th for the August 1st submission and after August 2nd for the August 16th submission.
