American Board of Family Medicine updates the iPhone Exam Prep app

Author: Thuc Huynh, MD

The ABFM just released a new update for its free Exam Prep app.  The app is a good, supplemental, portable study tool for physicians preparing for Board Certification in Family Medicine.  Medical students and residents may find use in these interesting questions as well.

The latest update adds 200 additional questions to the Q-Bank as well as a blueprint that outlines all of the content covered in the exam.

Other features of the app remain the same and include :
  • Practice Quizzes with clear answers
  • Exam Prep documents and videos
  • Upcoming exam dates
  • Links to the ABFM website
  • Links to the Journal of ABFM 
Using the practice quizzes will not require an internet connection but accessing the videos and exam dates will.

If you're preparing for the Family Medicine Boards or if you just want to test your general clinical knowledge, try this app for free.

You can download the app on itunes, here.
