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 Pediatric Anesthesiology 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.
The “QBL” Method
Detailed Study Guide
Laser-Focused Lectures: The Pass Machine Pediatric Anesthesiology board review course is comprised of 500+ short, easily-digestible lecture modules, each of which reflects exam topics mapped to the ABA® Pediatric Anesthesiology Exam blueprint. The modules are organized into lectures covering all related exam “keywords.” Thus, you effectively review every required exam topic and nothing else, acquiring increased mastery of the material in less time.
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.
Pediatric Anesthesiology 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
Optimized for Learning
Comprehensive Question Bank: Included with this course are 500+ Pediatric Anesthesiology multiple-choice questions (MCQ). Each question carefully follows the ABA® 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 ABA® Pediatric Anesthesiology boards test you! You’ll prepare by taking practice tests in a format that’s just like the actual exam.
Optimized for Learning: Unlike other Q Bank MCQs, The Pass Machine Pediatric Anesthesiology practice questions include detailed, referenced explanations. So you’re not only testing your knowledge of substance use disorders – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every question.
ANYTIME, ANYWHERE ACCESS
Unlimited Repeat Viewing
Lecture Viewing Options
Plus, CME Accreditation
On-the-go Convenience: Imagine being able to fit your Pediatric Anesthesiology exam prep around your busy schedule. Now you can — with 24/7 online access optimized for smartphone, tablet, and desktop.

Remember, the American Board of Anesthesiology tests you on the entire breadth of your specialty, beyond what’s practical in your day-to-day. Let our knowledgeable faculty guide you through a comprehensive review that covers exactly what the Pediatric Anesthesiology Certification Exam Blueprint dictates.
Pediatric Anesthesiology Certification “Grandfathering”
Diplomates can no longer register for the Pediatric Anesthesiology Examination with grandfathering criteria. The late registration deadline was Sept. 10, 2015. Diplomates who registered by that deadline have until Jan. 1, 2019 to take and pass the certification exam.
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 Pediatric Anesthesiology prep course features 32 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.”
Yours in board exam success,

“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
Carolyn Abbasi, MD, Rediands, CA

Catherine Gruffi, MD, New York City, NY

Becky Wright, MD, Collierville, TN
“I was very pleased with the course. I scored in the 85th percentile. The lectures were packed with good information and the quizzes were a good review. If you want to leave no doubt about passing the exam, take this course.”
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.”
Sana Ullah, MD, Dallas, TX

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

American Board of Anesthesiology Covid-19 Update
This information is updated weekly. For the most current update, please visit the ABA website.
Update August 31, 2020: How the MOCA 2.0 waiver impacts your certification. Earlier this year, we waived all 2020 MOCA requirements in light of the extraordinary circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve created a plan to ensure your certification will not be negatively impacted if you are unable to complete MOCA requirements this year.
All ABA diplomates have been sent personalized emails specific to the certifications they’re maintaining. Please contact us at 866-999-7501 or at [email protected] if you have questions or have not received a message from us.
Update August 24, 2020:Board moves to virtual administration of the APPLIED Exam in Spring of 2021.The Board—which has been working carefully and diligently since May to adapt the APPLIED Exam to meet the challenges presented by the pandemic—has voted to move forward with a virtual administration of the APPLIED Examination in the spring of 2021.
In working to adapt the APPLIED Exam for a virtual administration, our goal has been to maintain the integrity of the exam and assess as many candidates as possible, while avoiding as many preventable technical issues as possible. We acknowledge that, while this solution will not be perfect, we will do our utmost to provide a valid and reliable exam experience for our candidates and our examiners. We plan to return to in-person assessments as soon as it is safe to do so, possibility in the fall 2021.
Update July 14, 2020: Statement from ABA Secretary on the Cancellation of 2020 APPLIED Exams.
ABA Secretary David O. Warner, M.D., explains in the video below our rationale for cancelling this year’s APPLIED Exams and addresses our plans for the future. It is with deep regret that the Board has cancelled APPLIED Exam Weeks 7.5-9. This decision was made in light of travel restrictions ordered by states and cities across the U.S. due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases and out of concern for the safety of our candidates, examiners and staff. In the coming weeks and months, we will continue the work we have already begun to adapt the APPLIED Exam to meet the challenges presented by the pandemic (e.g. risk-mitigation measures for in-person exams and a virtual administration). We will continue to share our 2021 exam plans as they progress.
All candidates whose 2020 APPLIED exam were cancelled will be automatically registered for a 2021 exam. Appointments will be assigned based on the order of this year’s exam weeks (e.g. 2020 Week 2 candidates will be scheduled for an earlier appointment than 2020 Week 7 candidates).
