The Pass Machine® course is a proven, comprehensive, and laser-focused board review. And it comes in two versions – Online and Live – to match your personal learning style and your schedule:
Whichever course delivery method you choose – online or live – you receive the same proven learning experience and materials used by hundreds of physicians to prepare for and successfully pass their Pediatric Critical Care Certification Board Exam. Here’s how it works:
Laser-Focused Lectures: Content strictly follows the ABP® Pediatric Critical Care Certification exam blueprint. You review only what's expected on your exam and nothing else.
The “QBL” Method: To ensure pinpoint exam relevancy, the lectures use a method called “Question-Based Learning." Lectures are constructed from a series of board-style multiple choice questions, each coupled to a mini-lecture on that question's topic.
Board-Experienced Faculty: Lectures are presented by faculty experienced in teaching for board preparation. The two levels of medical editing ensure every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and 100% board-relevant.
CME Accreditation: Earn up to 33 AMA/PRA Category 1 CME Credit(s)TM by participating.
Always-on Convenience: The Pass Machine® course is optimized for 24/7 online access from any computer, smartphone, or tablet device, including the iPad® so you can watch the lectures and take practice exams whenever you have a free moment.
Detailed Printed Syllabus: The large course syllabus is included with every live and online course. It includes all the course lecture material, including lecture images, presented in a highly organized format. This way it’s easy to follow along with the live and recorded lectures, and can also be used independently of the lectures as a high-yield written resource.
Audio-Based Lectures: Audio from each live course lecture is recorded and uploaded onto your course dashboard, providing you flexibility to listen and review course topics while driving and exercising.
Deep Question Bank: Test your exam preparedness with hundreds of exam-style multiple-choice questions (MCQ). Questions carefully follow the board content outline, so each one is relevant to your preparation.
Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the boards test you. Learn how to answer questions in the board exam format. It’s as close as you can get to the real exam!
Optimized for Learning: The MCQs include detailed, referenced explanations. That way you’re not just testing your knowledge – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every board-style question.
If you want peace of mind, then make a guaranteed investment right now in The Pass Machine, a proven, comprehensive and laser-focused board review course. Like hundreds of other physicians, you won’t regret your decision to go with The Pass Machine. You have my word – and guarantee – on that!
If you’re not sure if you would benefit more from the Online or Live Course, you can purchase both for a small additional fee. This option enables you to receive immediate online course access so you can start studying now AND then attend an upcoming live course with engaging face-to-face interaction, as well as lecture recordings for later review.
The Pass Machine® course has proven to be a better way to learn. Please take a few moments to register now and get started on your exam preparations.
