Detailed Study Guide
Laser-Focused Lectures: The Pass Machine Geriatric Medicine board review course will help you master the ABIM® exam material quickly and easily. This course features a comprehensive library of short video lectures that are precisely aligned to the Geriatric Medicine Certification and Geriatric Medicine MOC exam blueprints. This way, you’ll focus on all of the exam topics and keywords with no wasted effort.
Board-Experienced Faculty: The Geriatric Medicine Certification and Geriatric Medicine MOC courses feature board-certified faculty experienced in teaching Geriatric Medicine board exam preparation. Thus, every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and entirely board-relevant.
Geriatric Medicine Study Guide: This course companion makes it easy to follow along with lectures, take notes, and study offline. The PDF includes the complete course syllabus, with all referenced slides, photos, illustrations, and infographics. (Printed version also available at checkout.)
BOARD-STYLE PRACTICE QUESTIONS
Comprehensive Q Bank
Realistic Test Environment
The “QBL” Method
Optimized for Learning
Comprehensive Question Bank: Included with this course are 900+ Geriatric Medicine multiple-choice questions (MCQ). Each question carefully follows the ABIM® board exam content outline and format, allowing you to test your exam preparedness while advancing your command of the exam content.
Realistic Test Environment: Your patients test you every day – but not in the same way the ABIM® Geriatric Medicine boards test you! You’ll prepare by taking practice tests in a format that’s just like the actual exam.
The “QBL” Method: “Question-Based Learning” ensures that your review is 100% relevant to the ABIM® Geriatric Medicine exam. This proven method works by pairing multiple choice questions with related lectures, allowing you to review a topic before answering the corresponding question.
Optimized for Learning: Unlike other Q Bank MCQs, The Pass Machine Geriatric Medicine practice questions include detailed, referenced explanations. So you’re not only testing your knowledge of geriatric medicine – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every question.

“I’m in downtown Chicago to highlight the anytime/anywhere/offline flexibility of The Pass Machine course. This Geriatric Medicine prep course features 33.5 hours of laser-focused lectures and a 900+ question Q Bank. But here’s the rub – all that great content will do you no good if you don’t get through it in time for the exam. Here are a few examples of the ease of preparing with The Pass Machine: 1) listen to audio lectures on the app as you commute to and from work, 2) answer a few MCQs on your lunch break, 3) watch video lectures as you work-out on the stair climber or exercise bike, and 4) when you know you’ll be on call without Wi-Fi or cellular signal, download lectures to your phone ahead of time. Works great on flights as well!
Here at American Physician Institute we’re dedicated to your board success. That’s why we offer you a better-than-money-back pass guarantee. We don’t succeed unless you succeed.”
Yours in board exam success,

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“I took my Geriatric Medicine Board 2 years ago and then had to take my Geriatrics board exam the following year. I passed EACH exam with a comfortable margin. I read things from my medical societies that interest me, but it’s so easy to drift away from areas that we also need to know for the test (and real life). I feel like the review program you designed best helped me know where I was weak. This showed me where I could focus my efforts to review the literature. And it worked! I will (and already have) recommend your review program to ALL of my medical associates. Thank you again!!”
Charles Miller, MD, Houston, TX
“It’s hard to cover the entire field of Geriatric Medicine in 4 days, but the API did an overall admirable job of doing so. Some areas were covered particularly well, especially the areas of Geriatric Psych, Dementia, Gerontology, Neuro/GF and endocrine. I liked the question & answer format. It will be very helpful to review lectures and syllabus prior to the exam.”
Linda Schoonover, Hampden, MA
“Excellent course with focus on targeted high value approach to a comprehensive Board review. Embedding Board-type questions with each talk added value and enhanced learning and allowed me to identify areas of weakness.”
Michael C. Dresser, MD, Jefferson Hills, PA
“The course has been very helpful not only for Board Exam preparation, but has also provided considerable information useful for daily practice.”
John Slutan, Highland Park, IL

Geriatric Medicine MOC Testimonials
“I’m still waiting for my exam results, but this course has helped me to prepare for my exam very well. This was my second attempt for Geriatrics Boards and this time I was confident that I could answer the questions. The good thing about this course is that it can be used until the candidate is able to pass the exam.”
Malathi Aakula, MD, Windermere, FL
“I took the AOBFP Geriatric Medicine recertification exam on March 19, 2016 and passed with a high score of 95%. I found the online course to be a great overview of Geriatric Medicine. The multiple choice practice questions definitely sharpened my test taking skills.”
Gary Baiocchi, DO, Gwynedd Valley, PA
“The course was not only a valuable means of passing the board but also was a comprehensive way to understand Geriatric Medicine. It covered all aspects of geriatric disciplines, easy to understand and apply to your daily practice. I took the course online and it was very easy to follow at my convenience. it has helped me to pass the board and has increased my knowledge in geriatrics.”
Sissay Awoke, MD, Washington, DC
“I took the geriatric recertification exam on October 1. I just received notification that I passed. that makes two ABFP exams that I have passed with the Pass Machine. Thank you for the opportunity and success in my endeavors.”
Richard Bond, DO, Santa Ana, CA
“One of my residents had some trouble passing IM Boards. After 2 attempts (failures), she called and said she had passed and gave great feedback about “The passing Machine” as the reason for passing. So-When I had to decide whether to take MOC in geriatrics I saw a Pass Machine advertisement for Geriatrics. So I said why not. The course was focused, well organized, on time and I didn’t fall asleep. I feel more confident now—I hope the outcome is similar to my resident.”
Stephan McDonald, Springfield, OH
“Comprehensive, intense, incredibly well coordinated. I feel much more prepared for the upcoming Boards.”

American Board of Internal Medicine Covid-19 Update
This information is updated weekly. For the most current update, please visit the ABIM website.
Update September 9, 2020:
ABIM is offering additional test dates on 12/14/20 and 12/15/20 for physicians registered to take a subspecialty certification exam. Before heading to your appointment, please read more about what Pearson VUE is doing to ensure the safety of test takers.
Update July 10, 2020: Scheduled for an assessment?
ABIM is working with Pearson VUE to ensure your safety throughout your exam day. Learn more about what to expect at test centers by reading our updated FAQs.
To be admitted to the test center, Pearson VUE may ask if you live with or have had close contact with someone who has confirmed or suspected COVID-19. We recognize many physicians are on the front lines treating patients during the pandemic, and in doing so may have come in close contact with someone who has confirmed or suspected COVID-19. Rest assured that physicians (medical/healthcare professionals) who treat patients while both are wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) will be admitted to the test center.
If you experience any issues being admitted to the test center on exam day, please call us at 1-800-441-ABIM (2246).
Update July 7, 2020: Update for IM Certification Exam Appointment Cancellations
Earlier today, some physicians received an automated email from ABIM reminding them to schedule their exam appointment. Our sincere apologies for any confusion that may have caused.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our lives in many ways. Unfortunately, capacity has decreased at all Pearson VUE test centers to maintain safety. As such, some appointments to take the Internal Medicine Certification Examination have been canceled and must be rescheduled.
If this applies to you, you should also receive this email, which clarifies important questions around why your appointment has been canceled and what your next steps are. If your exam is still scheduled in your Physician Portal, you have not been impacted.
If you need help or have any questions, please contact us at 1-800-441-ABIM (2246), Mon. - Fri., 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET or at [email protected], and we’ll provide you with personalized assistance to walk through your options.
