Program Overview & Target Audience:

This course is specifically designed for neurologists taking or retaking the Initial Certification Neurology Examination, the Initial Certification Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology Examination or the Recertification Examination.

This course is designed for neurology residents, fellows, and practicing neurologists.

Educational Goal:

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to prepare for either the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry (ABPN) Initial Certification Examination in Neurology,  the Initial Certification Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology Examination, or the Recertification Examination.

Benefits of Attendance:

The list of course topics and subtopics was adapted from the ABPN’s description of the board and recertification examinations. The time allotted for each topic is based upon the approximate distribution of the subject matter as given by the ABPN.

Our course will provide an excellent review of board exam and recertification topics and help the learner identify areas that require further study. The learner can then review and prepare further in these areas prior to taking the examination.
