Family Medicine Certification Exam (ABFM)

Family Medicine Certification Exam (ABFM)


The American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) certifies physicians in family medicine. The Family Medicine Board Certification Exam (the "ABFM") is required for initial and ongoing certification in family medicine. 


The ABFM is a one-day exam divided into four 95-minute sections of 75 questions each, with 100 minutes of pooled break time available between sections. All questions are in a single best answer, multiple-choice format.


The ABFM tests your ability to make appropriate diagnostic and management decisions for clinical scenarios for which patients may consult a family medicine practitioner. The content categories include: Respiratory, Cardiovascular, Musculoskeletal, Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Integumentary, Psychogenic, Nephrologic and Neurologic, Reproductive (Female and Male), Population-based Care, Patient-based Systems, and more.

I am happy to report that not only did I pass Step 1 with a much stronger score, but, even after we stopped working together, I continued to use his strategies as I prepared for subsequent tests and recently aced my specialty boards.

I initially worked with Akshay a few years ago after I had failed Step 1. We worked together via video chat which worked out great for both of our busy schedules and allowed Akshay to utilize technology to enhance my learning experience. Each session, Akshay used technology creatively to track my progress, to address my personal weaknesses and then to build skills and techniques to target my individual needs. Akshay is compassionate and patient with his students; he greatly improved my confidence as a test taker and helped me strengthen my knowledge base. I am happy to report that not only did I pass Step 1 with a much stronger score, but, even after we stopped working together, I continued to use his strategies as I prepared for subsequent tests and recently aced my specialty boards. I've worked with various tutors throughout my life and I would definitely say that Akshay stands out as unique. Akshay is clearly passionate about teaching and I would recommend him highly to anyone who is struggling or just looking to improve their score or medical knowledge.
