Throughout the course of your career as a pediatrician, you'll need to make sure you are in good standing with the American Board of Pediatrics. We've gathered everything you need to know to make sure you have what's necessary to achieve and maintain your ABP certification. Here's how to get the ABP certificates you need.
How to Get Your ABP Certification
The certification exam is one of the biggest exams you'll take in your career, and it can feel incredibly daunting. That's why we created learning tools tailored to the ABP content outline, so you get the most up-to-date, clear, and board-focused information available.
With the Pediatrics Study Strong Essentials, you'll study exactly what you need to know for your certification exam—no more, no less. This powerhouse package boosts your study with the combination of Pediatrics Core, Flashcards, and Q&As (get the All-Access package for digital and print formats of the Core and Flashcards plus $600 in savings). The digital versions of these study tools are all interlinked, so you can toggle back and forth across study formats covering the same topic area, to make sure it sticks in your head. In a single click, you can go from Core to Flashcards, Flashcards to Core; Q&As to Core, or Core to Q&As.
Need a study plan? That's where the Personal Trainer comes in. This super-smart, personalized learning tool makes the perfect interactive, adjustable study schedule for your board exam. This study schedule will help you understand exactly what you need to study and when so you can focus on the content you need to learn to ace your cert exam. You'll get weekly study plans with topics from the Core so you can prepare for each topic on the ABP content outline. Personal Trainer is included for free (a $300/year value!) with the Pediatrics Study Strong Essentials.
How to Maintain Your ABP Certification
Your relationship with the ABP does not end at certification! Once you get certified, you will need to pass Maintenance of Certification exams and earn CME credits and MOC points. The good news is, we've got learning tools for that too!
Signed up for the MOCA-Peds exam? We gather the high-yield points of information that you’re likely to be tested on for a new edition of QuickREF every year.
