ABIM Seeks Physician Input into Open Book Assessments
As part of ongoing efforts to enhance its Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) is examining the possibility of providing access to online resources such as UpToDate during assessments of medical knowledge, and is seeking physician input through a Research Study on Open Book Assessments. 
 
Physicians interested in participating in the study must complete a five-hour pilot exam in one of Pearson VUE’s testing centers across the country between April 17 and September 1. Participants will receive a $250 honorarium, 20 MOC points, and complimentary access to UpToDate during the research period. 
 
To participate in the Research Study on Open Book Assessments, schedule online at www.pearsonvue.com/abim or call Pearson VUE at 800-601-3549, Mon – Fri, 7 am – 7pm CT. You must use your ABIM ID as your identification number to register. Questions about signing up can be directed to ABIM at 800-441-ABIM (2246).
