cases referred to as the in-service examination) yearly during residency

uses a content outline that is identical to the blueprint for the ABFM certification examination. The examination includes 4 to 8 pictorial items,which may be radiographs, EKGs, pictures of dermatologic conditions, or other images.
The entire computer-based test is single-best-answer multiple- choice questions, with each question having four or five answers to choose from.
