Exam Success Requires Study. Isolation is Not Required.
A Study Community Welcomes You
Almost all board preparation now occurs online. With that convenience, though, comes less interaction with faculty and fellow Medical Oncology exam-takers.
When you register with The Pass Machine, you join a community of colleagues preparing for the same exam. On the community forum, you can ask questions, give advice, and offer to start or join a study group.
There is strength in numbers – help and be helped, stay motivated, and get connected. All with The Pass Machine! Get started today.
Detailed Study Guide
Laser-Focused Lectures: The Pass Machine Medical Oncology 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 Medical Oncology Certification and Medical Oncology MOC exam blueprints. This way, you’ll focus on all of the exam topics and keywords with no wasted effort.
Board-Experienced Faculty: The Medical Oncology Certification and Medical Oncology MOC courses feature board-certified faculty experienced in teaching Medical Oncology board exam preparation. Thus, every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and entirely board-relevant.
Medical Oncology 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 500+ Medical Oncology 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® Medical Oncology 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® Medical Oncology 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 Medical Oncology practice questions include detailed, referenced explanations. So you’re not only testing your knowledge of medical oncology – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every question.

Unlimited Repeat Viewing

Register and study within minutes – No hassles, wasted energy, or delays!
“I’m in downtown Chicago to highlight the anytime/anywhere/offline flexibility of The Pass Machine course. This Medical Oncology prep course features 34.25 hours of laser-focused lectures and 500+ Q Bank questions. 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.”

“First of all I would like to thank you for arranging this course. It was very precise and extremely full of information. It is also very applicable to our daily practice following the new standard guidelines.”
Sapna R. Patel, MD
“I completed all of the online lectures prior to this live course which greatly improved my experience with the live course compared to previous live courses. I think that the more I do the more I will retain and improve my likelihood of passing.”
Jack Saux, MD
“It’s a nice “comprehensive review” as any other CME, but I would rate it # 1 among others. In order to stand out as a “pass machine” tool you would need to saturate the content to high yield info in order to be focused on the best.”
“Faculty was well-prepared and experts in their field. Presentations were laser (curated?) toward board-related material.”
Robert Ellis, MD, Vancouver, WA
“Excellent course. Definitely helped me getting a great score. Highly recommend it.”

Medical Oncology MOC Testimonials
“I enrolled in the American physician Institute course through something I got in the mail. When I saw a 97 percent pass rate, I thought that it would be silly not to enroll. This course allows you to focus your studying rather than be completely overwhelmed by the amount of material. This was so much better and easier than sitting through lectures for 8 hours through a George Washington or M.D. Anderson course. We all know that your attention span cannot hold for that long. A great thing about this course, is I could do it on weekends and for 15 min – 2 hour blocks, or even do it when I had patient cancellations. You can stream it through the Internet, and the website was never down. Not only was I able to easily pass the exam, I did learn a decent amount that was helpful for patient care. I did some studying outside of this course, through personal files I have written over the years, but this course gave me most of the information I needed to pass. None of the instructors had unintelligible accents, and they all focus on clinically relevant material. They do not go off on tangents about their personal research. And that really helps.”
Vinni Juneja, MD, San Juan, PR
“I obtained the course materials for self-study in September for the October exam last year, having found out about the course a few weeks earlier. I felt unprepared and a little panicked for the exam at that point, using only the ASCO SEP book and the relatively few questions in that text. I was able to access The Pass Machine materials/videos online, and using the written text in the binder, I was able to review all the topics in a relatively short time and concentrate on the areas I felt weaker in. The format allowed me to review the materials even over short periods of free time at work and I worked full-time until the test. The questions on the online tests were extremely helpful and written in a similar format to the Board questions. I went into the exam feeling confident as a result of my study with The Pass Machine materials and the results showed that not only did I pass the exam, but I was able to score in the highest percentile in more than half the topics. I am indebted to The Pass Machine course for helping me pass my recertification Oncology Boards.”
Vijay Kasturi, MD, Worcester, MA
“I’m happy to report that I passed my Medical Oncology MOC exam. As an academic medical oncologist, I specialize in the treatment of one cancer and so the prospect of reviewing for a test encompassing all solid tumors (with a healthy sprinkling of hematology) was daunting. However, your course was excellent and helped me review for the test in a relatively short period of time. I highly recommend your review course for anyone registered for a MOC exam, and it’s the best money that I’ve spent in a long time.”
Jow Baar, MD, PhD, Avon, OH
“I felt this was an easy and convenient way to study. The program hit highlights. The course provided tests and questions. I was able to pass and I only used this program. I owe my success to this course!”
Pallavi Kumar, MD, Towson, MD
“Thank you for your great program. I thought the materials were very focused and clear. I also appreciated the question-focused approach, which is particularly relevant to the medical oncology recertification exam. Your method of communicating and frequent feedback was also very helpful. I ordered the program late, but was able to go through it intently. Great results! I would recommend this program without reservation to anyone who is taking the exam. Thanks again.”
Barryy Levinson, MD, South Orange, NJ
“It simply boosts confidence. The test questions are good exercise. I highly recommend it.”
Zuo Ming Huang, MD, Danville, AL
“tremendous course I was fully prepared.”

American Board of Internal Medicine Covid-19 Update
This information is updated weekly. For the most current update, please visit the ABIM website.
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.
