Dear Colleague, I’m in downtown Chicago to highlight the flexibility of The Pass Machine. We’ve optimized this course to be available anytime, anywhere — even offline. Now you can listen to audio lectures on the app as you commute to and from work, answer a few MCQs on your lunch break, or watch video lectures as you work-out on the stair climber or exercise bike. When you know you’ll be on call without Wi-Fi or cellular signal, download lectures to your phone ahead of time — great feature for flights as well! This flexibility is vital, because all the great content this course offers won’t do you much good if you don’t get through it in time for the board exam. Yours in board exam success, Jack Krasuski, MD, Executive Director [email protected]

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.
Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
"I would like to thank you for the ABIM board review course. I received my passing score yesterday and your course and set of lecturers had a centerpiece in my preparation for this examination. This is the second time that I have taken your course in preparation for my ABIM board exam. I took the course 10 years ago and again it was my guiding light into passing this exam. I just wanted to personally thank you for the great work you do in hiring excellent lecturers."
Ramon Cheleuitte, MD, Winthrop, ME
“I have the story of all stories. Previously I had failed the initial certification (Internal Medicine) exam 4 to 6 times. The ABIM notified me that was my last attempt to pass, otherwise I would have to go back to do at least another year of Internal Medicine Residency to regain my Board Eligibility status...my 10 year exemption was up.
I did the live review course in Chicago, went thru all live lectures at least 1 more time, went thru all written lecture notes at least twice. Did the entire Q-bank.....TWICE for a total of just shy of 5,000 questions.
Studied for a year and a half.
I made notes on my own of all topics that I was confused on or didn't understand.
My compliment is this......I PASSSED!!!!!!!
The material provided to me was spot on....but you have to put the work in.
My situation couldn't have been any more critical with a new house, wife and kids.
I would have lost me current job.
I personally can't THANK API enough and can only hope my story helps others and becomes advertised widely within API.
To all of API.....thank you, thank you and thank you again. I am forever in your debt.”
Todd Gray, MD, Davenport, IA
“This course proved to be absolutely essential to passing the IM board exam! Each of the topic lectures were comprehensive yet concise enough to feel comfortable with answering any board question. Even the Acid-Base lecture was easy to follow. Planning to sign up again once MOC exam rears its ugly head!”
Allison Goldsmith, MD, Columbus, OH
“Getting away from the office for a week and focusing on studying for this exam was just what I needed. I was able to stop worrying about how I was going to tackle this material and start narrowing down what I needed to focus on and identifying any weak points. I am thrilled to report that I passed my exam October 2010. Thank you Dr. Krasuski for organizing and developing this course!”
Allison Goldsmith, MD, Columbus, OH
“I found the course you gave the best review course I have ever attended. Since I have been in practice for 25 years I can offer a degree of validity to that statement. Your speakers provided clear concise and informative information about their subjects and gave insights into pathophysiology that I never knew existed. It cleared up a lot of doubts. I had in some of the areas I don’t always practice. I am using the online video to review and believe that is one of the most important aspects of this. I will also do the review questions after I have completed the lectures again. Your support staff were professional and ran the program like a military operation. Cudos to you for having come up with a superior product.”
Jorge Gardyn, MD, Amityville, NY
“I have been impressed with the course, including the depth of topic coverage, as well as the panel of physicians chosen as speakers. When I first signed up for the course, I did not know of anyone else who had taken the course. This course has provided me with didactic sessions and with materials I will be able to review at home in several formats, as well as board-style questions/answers. I compared to other board review courses – no other course offered all of these features and backed with the guarantee. I would highly recommend this course.”
Daniel Duran, MD, Knoxville, TN
“Best overall board course I have ever taken! In addition to the well-organized course materials, the faculty are attentive to important clinical pearls needed not only for passing the boards, but also important for providing excellent competent care for our patients with the latest best practices. The triple guarantee and attention to important details (excellent course materials, even markers, ad meals at a cost-effective hotel with a better negotiated rate) were much-appreciated bonuses. The availability to have an onsite as well as online course makes this an excellent choice.”
Valerie Pronio Stelluto, MD, FACP, West Roxbury, MA
“This review course was a fantastic review of Internal Medicine in regards to its focus on the IM Board Exam. It will be very useful in my clinical practice as well. The course was very attentive to my educational needs in helping me to optimize studying in the most effective way. The addition of online videos and questions further increased my satisfaction with this review. Finally, the specialists in each field represented here were exceptional.”
Jay Patel, MD, Aurora, OH“I use the materials from the course for my clinical and expert witness work. Not only did I pass the test, I saw the material in a different way so it wasn't just rote memorization. Thank you.”
Karen Josephson, MD, Long Beach, CA
“I think this is a great review course. The information is relevant and speakers were all excellent. I would recommend this course to anyone.”
William Slama, MD, Zionsville, IN
“I think this was an excellent amount of information delivered in this short time. I have yet to do the exam to find out how the course helps. Irrespective of the exam, it is a good way to brush up and feel confident about practicing medicine. Speakers were great, knowledgeable and great presenters for the most part.”
Savita Sheth, MD, South Windsor, CT
“Overall, the course is very good. The convenience of being able to study at home cannot be overstated. The lectures were informative, educational and cleared up some ‘muddy waters’ issues for me. I learned something of value from every lecture.”
Mary Pellioni, MD, Temperance, MI
“Well-organized and pertinent material was the main focus, avoiding less helpful areas of internal medicine. The speakers were good and engaging. There was more than adequate time for some one-on-one interaction with the lecturers. Online access outside the conference venue was a big plus. I strongly recommend this course.”
Henry Roy, MD, Sweden, ME
“A great course! Choice of location (Arlington Heights, IL) was wonderful. For the intensity and focus required, it was refreshing to be away from the congestion of the down town, big-city areas. With the scope to be covered, I believe the presenters did a great job!”
Nzeribe, MD, Crystal Lake, IL
“The conference was compact and intense, but did hit all the major topics expected on the Board exam. Lecturers were very knowledgeable and audio-visual aids / slides were thorough. I would definitely recommend this course."
Faith M. Gray, MD, Atlanta, GA
“The whole course was excellent and well planned. I always like to attend live programs, it gets me out of my busy schedule. I would like to congratulate and commend you and all your staff for the excellent set up.”

“Thank you for this very well-organized review, packed with high-yield facts and buzzwords. The presenters were excellent –they held our attention and gave frequent small breaks to keep it fresh. Highly recommend.”
Angela Self, MD, Fort Worth, TX

Sangita Patel, MD, Harvard, IL

F. DeChurch, MD, Reidsville, NC
“Course was good overall. Some of the best presentations were in Cardiology (Dr. Kapoor) and Pulmonology – best presenters of these two topics, which was helpful.”
Annie-Marie Cole, MD, New Hope, MN
“A lot of good information; Overall well presented by excellent speakers. I appreciate the take-home course materials and ability to review lectures online.”
Mary Barres, MD, Louisville, KY

Christian Lu, MD, Irvine, CA
“One of the best courses that I have attended. I wish I had taken live course in 1st or 2nd year of residency, which would have helped me prepare for the exam & also help in patient care.”
Naveen Kumar Krishna, MD, St. Louis, MO
“I appreciated the pace of the course. All of the speakers were well organized and moved very quickly through the material. I feel we covered almost all of the important topics necessary to do well on the boards.”

Internal Medicine MOC Testimonials
“As an internal medicine and pediatrics physician, I had to maintain certification for both boards. I first took the pediatrics course and passed the exam. I just completed the internal medicine board review course. Again, I passed with a score well above the mean. Both times, I felt I was well prepared for the exams. The study material and questions were very representative of the questions on the board exams. Major topics were highlighted by the lectures and study materials. I have recommended this course to my colleagues who have come back to thank me for letting them know about this excellent course. I definitely will be taking the course again when I am due to recertify again.”
Hugh Pabarue, MD, Macomb, MI
“I first took the IM boards right after residency and used MKSAP. I failed. I then retook the exam a few years later, again using MKSAP, and just barely passed. Now, 10 years later, for the MOC exam, I again used MKSAP and failed the exam. This past fall, I saw The Pass Machine and decided to try it out as I was striking out with MKSAP. I went to The Pass Machine in Las Vegas, and studied exclusively with your materials for this exam. I am happy to report that I SMOKED the MOC exam thereafter -- I didn't just barely pass, I SMOKED it with a very high score.
Sandra Barton, MD, Portland, OR
“I signed up for your course for the ABIM maintenance of certification exam preparation. I was very pleased with your program as a video with many test questions. Your speakers were clear, concise and dynamic. The test questions were mostly very good and helpful in identifying those subtleties the boards always seem to include in their tests. I am pleased and proud to say I passed. Thank you for your help.”
Catherine R. Landers, MD, Skokie, IL
“I loved The Pass Machine. It was intense and packed full of both the obvious and obscure. I was reassured that much of the material presented was familiar to me and those old "pearls" from medical school and residency came flying back from the dark reaches of my memory banks. The course instructors effectively guided me and the other attendees through the realm of Internal Medicine and most sub-specialty areas. They were spot-on! Almost all of the questions on my exam had been covered by the Pass Machine course material and very little of the study guide "lists" material was needed. The material presented was not new, it just needed refreshing and The Pass Machine did that. I can't say that I was completely confident going in to my ABIM exam, but when I saw so many familiar topics and questions, I was pretty confident coming out. 2 months later when my "pass" letter came, I was not surprised. I feel the refresher course (that’s how I think of The Pass Machine now) has made me a better internist. I will take the course again in about 5 years, well before my next recertification, just to keep me up to date. Thanks, Pass Machine.”
Sarah Meloche, MD, Friendswood, TX
“I'm a busy practicing physician, mother, and wife and had no time to take off or start preparing months in advance for recertification. I really found this board review helped my practicing knowledge as well as pass the boards. The material was comprehensive and yet relevant to the boards. All the speakers were well prepared. Best of all, I could listen to the lectures at my convenience. I would highly recommend it to my colleagues. In fact, I persuaded my husband to try it and he passed the boards the following year! Thanks!”
Sabahat Nawab, MD, McLean, VA
“I passed the ABIM/MOC with a high grade. The American Physician Institute prepared me well to pass the boards. The American Physician Institute provides a balanced, bias-free, and well organized continuing medical education program which prepares us for the challenges of certification and recertification. It is a great preparation course for your boards.”
Mohamed Abouhasira, MD, Midlothian, VA
“Thank you again for this course. I was able to successfully pass the boards. The information provided was concise and accurate without extraneous filler. I will recommend this to my peers!”
Debjoti Sensharma, MD, Phoenix, AZ
“The course was a complete, concise and engaging review of General Internal Medicine. I took the course for recertification and passed! Although, I have recertified I plan on listening to the lectures again! I enjoyed the lectures very much.”
Geraldine Darroca, MD, Carmel, IN
“The Pass Machine Board Recertification prep course helped me immensely and was a critical factor in my passing first time. I feel that without having attended the course, despite my private study over many months, it would have been a real challenge! I found the prep questions we went through during the various modules were at precisely the level of difficulty of the exam itself, and in that regard were an ideal form of preparation. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your course to anyone preparing for Boards for the first time, or for re-certification.”
Christopher Da Costa, MD, Furlong, PA
“I took the Internal Medicine recertification exam in September 2012. This was my first time to recertify in IM. As an osteopathic physician I was required to attend the ACOI Internal Medicine Board Review course. I also signed up for the Pass Machine’s online course. I found the Pass Machine lectures easy to watch, engaging and very thorough. As a sub-specialist I have not practiced Internal Medicine since my residency and have thus forgotten a lot of the material. The Pass Machine provided a comprehensive review of material I had not thought of in 10 years! Compared to the board review course I was required to take, the Pass Machine was by far superior and more thorough. I particularly liked the sample questions. They were effective at getting you back into test taking mode. I also like that you can have access to all of the materials by purchasing the online only version. I was 7 months pregnant with twins when the in-person course was offered and unable to travel, so the online option was perfect for me. One of the first questions on my recertification exam was covered directly in one of the lectures I watched the night before the exam! I am extremely pleased that I purchased this course and have recommended it to many of my colleagues facing recertification.”
Jessica Hals, DO, FACOI, Fort Worth, TX
“There were many board review courses to choose from; however, I chose The Pass Machine because of the location, the timing, and the guarantee that I would pass. Other positives included the syllabus of medicine topics, the fact that I could review the lectures I attended on-line, and the many practice exams at my fingertips. After returning home, I reviewed the syllabus, watched some of the lectures on-line, and as test time drew closer, I used the practice exams as a method of studying. I was very pleased with your course and I would recommend it to anyone recertifying for internal medicine. Thank you.”
Sonia Proudfoot, MD, Somerset, KY
“There is so much information to study, it is hard to know what to review for the MOC. Taking this course allows you to focus on the subjects to the extent necessary to Pass the Internal Medicine MOC. If you know what is in this material, it will be enough to pass!”
Scott Brasseur, MD, Hastings, MI
“This has been the most useful part of my effort to prepare for Recertification in Internal Medicine. The lectures are interesting and remind me of so much I would have forgotten. The instructors clearly focus on the material that we need. They are all well-spoken, organized and coherent. Terrific course!”
Alice Emery, MD, Grand Rapids, MI
“I came with the intention of seeing what I already knew & what I still need to learn prior to recertifying in April 2011. The course covered a good amount of information, but more important is the fact that I can now review more specific areas when I get home. The fact that the course is available online & especially on the iPod will make it much easier to study anywhere.”
Barbara Modic, MD, Youngstown, OH
“This was the second time I had to sit for the recertification examination. The course was well worth the time, effort and cost. I was very impressed with the study guide, the lectures, the online review and MOC test questions. I highly recommend the class to all of my colleagues and I'm sure I'll be seeing you again in ten years!”
Paul Schwartz, MD, Delray Beach, FL
“I really enjoyed the course as MOC review but also from a practice standpoint. I’m boarded in psych as well and will probably take the MOC course for this, as well as the Master Psychopharmacology Course.”

The Pass Machine Internal Medicine Board Review – Frequently Asked Questions
General Questions about The Pass Machine and American Physician Institute
Is The Pass Machine different from other board reviews?
Yes, in three main ways:
1. The Pass Machine board review is the most comprehensive option. More than just a Question Bank of practice questions, each course includes in-depth lectures in a familiar classroom setting presented by expert faculty. This means you get a topic-by-topic review of exactly what’s on the board exam in much greater detail than what you can get from Qbank answer explanations.
2. Because the physician’s schedule is typically a hectic one, The Pass Machine is optimized for on-the-go review. Components such as the audio-only lecture option, iOS and Andriod app for mobile review, and offline access capability, and a fully-illustrated board-mapped study guide make The Pass Machine review easy to incorporate at any point your daily routine.
3. The Triple Trust Guarantee not only gives you a full tuition refund if you don’t pass the exam the first time after taking the course, but it also gives you an extra 10% AND allows you continued access until you pass, for free. This unprecedented guarantee serves to assure you of the confidence we have that The Pass Machine content is exceptional.
Who produces The Pass Machine Courses? Where do you get your faculty?
The Pass Machine board review courses are produced by American Physician Institute for Advanced Professional Studies, LLC (API). API conducts dozens of courses and trains thousands of physicians each year to pass their boards and stay up-to-date in their fields. Every single one of American Physician Institute‘s educational courses has full editorial independence, is free of pharmaceutical and industry sponsorship and is backed by an unbeatable guarantee. Because of its reputation for excellence, American Physician Institute is able to enlist many of the top faculty from the best universities, teaching hospitals and research facilities in the country to provide you with Category 1 CME educational activities.
Do you provide board review for other medical specialties?
Yes! In fact, we provide preparation for dozens of other specialty and subspecialty board exams. Check out www.AmericanPhysician.com for the full list.
Is it likely that my employer will cover my tuition?
Because all The Pass Machine courses are approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, it is likely that your tuition will be reimbursed. You may be surprised at how many residency and fellowship training programs, group practices, and other employers pay for or reimburse you for such Category 1 educational activities. After all, it’s in everyone’s best interests to have you board certified. It really pays to ask your training director, medical director or administrator if you are eligible because some training programs and employers do pay for board exam training. And, if you work for the Federal Government, American Physician Institute is a certified business in the CCR database and can accept government checks and credit cards.
Does The Pass Machine offer any free board review resources?
Yes! Start with our Medical Board Review Blog. There are general articles featuring board prep tips, and articles on board prep that are more board-specific.
What is your Sam.gov Unique Entity ID?

Board Exam Results and The Triple Trust Guarantee
Is The Pass Machine Internal Medicine review pass-guaranteed?
Yes, all full courses are pass-guaranteed, and backed by The Triple Trust Guarantee. At any time, you can view The Triple Trust Guarantee Terms & Conditions.
What does The Triple Trust Guarantee cover?
If you purchase an online course with “The Triple Trust Guarantee” and then do not pass your board exam, API will issue a 100% refund of your paid tuition *, plus an additional 10% payment. You’ll also continue to get online course access until you pass the exam, tuition-free. The guarantee expires in the event the exam for which this course is designed is no longer offered by the certifying board.
* Tuition is defined as the amount you paid for your base course, and does not include optional course add-ons, such as purchase of online access extensions, and/or the live course attendance option (where available). If any promotional items, such as gift cards, are included with your purchase, the value of that promotional item will be deducted from your tuition.
The Triple Trust Guarantee sounds too good to be true—is it for real?
Yes, it’s completely real. Rest assured, API has always honored its guarantees and always will. No other company does? The Triple Trust Guarantee is API’s way of demonstrating that it’s just as invested in your success as you are. After all, if you fail your board exam, API will pay a penalty. API will refund your course tuition in full, provide you with a bonus, and allow you continued access to the course tuition-free until you pass your exam for as long as the exam is offered by the certifying board. The guarantee ensures API doesn’t get paid for effort, only for passing results.
Does The Triple Trust Guarantee cover non-tuition course options and upgrades?
No. Course options and upgrades are non-tuition related. Therefore, these fees are not included in any guarantee-related refund payment made under the terms of The Triple Trust Guarantee.
What should I do if I don’t pass my board exam?
First, it’s important to remember that a non-passing result is not necessarily a reflection on your abilities as a physician. The way the ABIM tests you is not the same as the many ways you’re “tested” as a practicing physician. Check out this reassuring video from Dr. Jack - What To Do If You Fail Your Board Exam https://www.thepassmachine.com/video-what-to-do-fail-your-board-exam/
More to the point, American Physician Institute can work with you to help you get over this professional hurdle. Give us a call!
