There are three steps to achieve Emergency Medicine certification: 1) applying and credentialing, 2) taking and passing a qualifying examination, and 3) taking and passing an oral certification examination. Physicians who successfully complete each of these steps are certified as diplomates of the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM). Certification is for a period of ten years. Go to the following ABEM website for more information.
Many residents and recent graduates spend a significant amount of time and money preparing for the board exams. As a result, EMRA would like to help you to make informed decisions about how best to spend your time and money preparing for the boards. As EMRA neither produces nor promotes any specific board review product, the EMRA Board of Directors has sponsored a survey of recent graduates to assess their overall preparation for the boards and their opinions and comments about specific board review products that they may have used during their preparations. Every effort was made to include a comprehensive list of all textbooks, review courses, tutoring, and online products available.
