Tips for Passing the Pediatric Anesthesia Board Review Course
In addition to providing industry-leading Pediatric Anesthesia review, we can also offer a few helpful tips that will ease the stress on exam day.
Start Early and Make a Study Schedule: Pediatric Anesthesia board exams are challenging and require a lot of preparation. Start studying early and make a schedule that you can stick to. Make sure you allocate sufficient time for each subject area and practice questions.
Use Multiple Resources: Use multiple resources to study for the exam. Don’t rely on just one textbook or review course. Use textbooks, review courses, online resources, and practice questions to reinforce your understanding of the material.
Focus on High-Yield Topics: Pediatric Anesthesia board exams often have a lot of material to cover, but not all topics are of equal importance. Focus on high-yield topics such as airway management, pharmacology, and pain management.
Practice Questions: Practice questions are a great way to assess your knowledge and identify areas that need more attention. Use our practice questions and review the explanations for both correct and incorrect answers.
Simulate the Exam Experience: Try to simulate the exam experience as much as possible. Take practice exams under timed conditions to get used to the pace of the exam. This will also help you identify areas where you need to improve your time management skills.

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“Thank you for putting together a thorough and interesting course for the Pediatric Anesthesia Board review. Most of the lecturers and lectures were clear, informative, and presented in a way that did not put me to sleep. Online access to the lectures and materials were easy and quick. The website was very user friendly. I was just notified last week by the ABA of my “passed” result on the Pediatric Board Exam. I do not know if I’ll have to retake this exam in 10 years, but I know I’ll be looking at your course again if I do.”
Tony Ho, MD, Huntington Beach, CA
“This was an effective way to organize and focus study for the peds anesthesia board exam. All aspects of the course were excellent: lectures, written syllabus, and practice questions. I’m always surprised at how hard questions can be even though I’ve studied and know the material! Test questions are invaluable in preparing! The course prepared me very well for the exam.”
Karen Paddock, MD, Gold River, CA
“This is an amazing study guide for any pediatric fellow to use at the beginning of their fellowship and throughout their entire career. Even though the content can help you with your certification exam, it is an excellent tool to use to help teach others pediatric going to see here.”
Paul Nguyen, MD, Santa Ana, CA
“Excellent program! The Pediatric Anesthesia course was a great compilation of lectures and speakers. The questions were very relevant, although many were harder than the actual boards questions. Passed the Peds Boards with flying colors! I am already a repeat customer. A few months later I took my MOCA recertification test, used API again, passed no problem. Thanks again!”
Susanne Rupert, MD, Buffalo, MN
“I passed using The Pass Machine. It was extremely helpful to listen to lectures and not have to travel. The practice exams were very helpful and there are few materials out there that have pediatric anesthesia board questions. I wouldn’t have passed without it!”
Michelle Petrie, MD, Orange, CA
“I passed my boards with a high grade. Lectures were very helpful. This is the first time that I ever purchased a review course. It was very helpful. Lectures were on point specially for those of us who don't do cardiac. Question bank was very helpful. Felt very confident after I took the course. Thank you so much”
Georgette Gilda Alexis, MD, Jarco, NY“This course helped me pass the exam. Material in the lectures and questions were very pertinent to what was on the exam. Without taking the course, I would have gotten many more questions wrong. I liked that the lectures were broken down by subject and very organized along with the questions . I would recommend this course to my colleagues in the future.”
Carolyn Abbasi, MD, Rediands, CA
“Pass machine was the only study aid I used to enable me to pass my pediatric boards on the first attempt. The lectures were not only helpful for exam success, but also to improve my clinical practice!”
Catherine Gruffi, MD, New York City, NY

Becky Wright, MD, Collierville, TN

Michael Panger, MD, Charleston, WV
“I absolutely recommend this course. It was as if the sample questions were 'lifted' straight out of the actual board exam, but just worded differently. It was FABULOUS. Plus the course 'zeroed' in, on what was really needed, in order to pass the course. I highly recommend it. Worth EVERY DIME!”
Gayne Brenneman, MD, Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA
“If I had not done this course, I'm pretty sure I would have failed the exam. The online course allowed me to study in my own time, at my own pace. The actual audio-visuals were excellent. I am recommending this course to my colleagues.”

Also I did find it helpful in understanding of some concepts in general and cardiac pediatric anesthesia that I was lacking before. Highly recommend it without reservations.”
Mikhail Kruglyakov, MD, Parkland, FL
“For a busy practicing physician who may not want to commit to the expenses, time, and financial loss of traveling to a review course, and who wants to be most time-efficient in exam preparation by having a concise course content that can be reviewed multiple times in a self-paced manner, this format and program is a fantastic option.”
Napoleon Burt, MD, Southlake, TX
“API offered a thorough review for the Pediatric Anesthesiology Boards. There were lectures I could view online at my pace, along with hard copies of the notes from the lectures to view and take my own notes. The practice exams are invaluable - I could take them as many times as I wanted, and the explanations for the answers really improved my understanding. I felt like I really benefited from this course, and I will use it again in the future!”
Amanda Froment, MD, Cary, NC
“I boarded in 3 fields of medicine and trained at Brigham and Women's for my anesthesia residency and have taken several boards over the years. This was hands down the most useful board review I have ever taken. It was spot on the money and the question bank alone was worth the money.”
Chris Duperier, MD, Houston, TX
“I am 64 years old and close to retirement. It was very difficult to go back to studying for an exam but the Pass Machine course is laid out in a very logical and professionally produced series of lectures and questions. The format resonated with me in a way that made the review enjoyable and extremely worthwhile. It is the most efficient learning experience I have had in my life! Highly recommended!”
James Houck, MD, Amherst, NY
“This course is an intensive, comprehensive, and concise review. I found it to be extremely helpful because the content is well organized and the speakers are excellent and knowledgeable. Great care and thought seems to have been exercised in making this course and excellent preparation for the boards.”
Joanna E. Green, MD, Walnut, CA

Danielle Madril, MD

The Pass Machine Pediatric Anesthesiology 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).

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.

Board Exam Results and The Triple Trust Guarantee
Is The Pass Machine Pediatric Anesthesiology 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 anesthesiologist. The way the ABA tests you is not the same as the many ways you’re “tested” as a practicing anesthesiologist. 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!
