- Listen to audio lectures on the app as you commute to and from work
- Answer a few MCQs on your lunch break
- Watch video lectures as you work-out on the stair climber or exercise bike
- Download lectures to your phone ahead of a flight or when out of wi-fi or cellular range

Yours in board exam success,

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“The Pass Machine was the best decision I've made in a while. I just want to say thank you!! You guys are doing an awesome job. Passing was the best birthday present I ever had.”
Lisa Hage, MD, Sebastian, FL
“Your product was excellent. It provided a brief overview yet covered the necessary need to know topics in each section. It afforded me time to listen to the lectures more than once on subjects that I needed while being able to do lots of questions. It was successful towards helping me pass my boards which I was not sure would have been possible otherwise.”
Oriaku Kas-Osoka, MD, San Jose, CA
“Excellent, well organized comprehensive review. Outstanding faculty. I am so happy I decided to attend. I feel so much better prepared for MOC. Would recommend to all pediatricians.”
Jacelyn Joseph, MD, Newton, MA
“After being out of primary care pediatrics for over 20 years, I needed a good review + way to get updated information. This course gave me both, information that I can take home with me and continue to study.”
Barbie Skelton, MD, Church Hill, TN
“This conference was excellent! The presentation was enthusiastic and concise. The opportunities to review the content live then recorded online and on paper are invaluable. The quality of notes including tables, diagrams, and pictures were fantastic.”
Amy Fair, MD, Otsego, MN“The quality of speakers was impressive. After a full week of immersion with the material, I feel better prepared for the test, but more importantly, I have the motivation, materials, and techniques to study efficiently and make the most of my time”
April Guminsky, MD, Toano, VA
“An excellent review course. Very well organized. Like to attend every year if I could.”
Sunny Thomas, MD, Warren, PA
“Excellent program. I like the audio visual, printed, and webinar options. Good questions as well.”
General Pediatrics MOC Testimonials
“I was very concerned about passing my recertification as I had never taken the recert exam before. After your review course, I was more than prepared. The exam felt almost easy! I was pleased with my results and will continue to recommend this course to all my friends. I am not one who typically responds to reviews or surveys, but this course deserves a good review.”
Shannon Calvert, MD, Bolivar, MO
“I was due for my second MOC renewal and very nervous after being out of training for twenty years. I have been Board certified since I completed residency and had no intention of losing that. More insurance companies are requiring Boards to get credentialed. I used the online course to study and found it to be a wonderful resource. With a full time job and two children, my life is even more busy than during Residency! The material is presented in about one hour long lectures with review questions and written content so you get a thorough, up-to-date review of topics you may not see in your practice, Board style questions to get you back into test-taking mode and great notes to refer back to in the future. I am happy to report that I passed with a great score. What a relief! Thanks for your help.”
Laura Swingle, MD, Berwick, PA
“After attending an AAP prep course in Atlanta in September, I enrolled in the MOC General Pediatrics seminar. The bottom line is that I passed and am recertified!!!!!!! The course was very helpful in my review after 32 years from my first board certification exam in 1982. It was well worth the purchase price and the time devoted to the education endeavor many thanks.”
Richard Kouri, MD, Colorado Springs, CO
“I recently took my pediatrics boards for the 4th time. I was a little nervous since it has been 10 years since my last test. I found The Pass Machine course very helpful and well run. I took the course in Rosemont IL. The speakers were excellent and the course materials were very helpful. I ended up doing very well on my test. I plan to retake the course in a few years just to get a good update. I have recommended the course to others who need a review before taking the test in Pediatrics and also in Internal medicine which I did 3 years ago. Thanks for providing a great service.”
Richard Kouri, MD, Colorado Springs, CO
“Time well spent. Excellent review of Pediatrics. I feel better prepared to pass the recertifying exam than studying completely on my own. Very focused on passing boards.”
Louis Trunzo, MD, Phoenix, AZ
“The course was very complete and contained everything I needed to pass the boards the first time.”
Julie Hodge, MD, Dallas, TX
“Most useful aspects – when speaker is more board question oriented and mentions and stresses (highlights) board caveat. Because it is a board preparation/MOC course NOT a regular CME conference. Most of your speakers are suberb!”
Irina Rybalsky, MD, Cincinnati, OH
“Intensive comprehensive review of general pediatrics medicine.”

American Board of Pediatrics Covid-19 Update
This information is updated weekly. For the most current update, please visit the ABP website.
UPDATE: December 17, 2020: MOC Cycles Ending in 2020 - The ABP has awarded MOC points for COVID-19-related learning and improvement to all certified pediatricians who have requirements due this year. These MOC points will satisfy any remaining Part 2 and Part 4 requirements, allowing all ABP-certified pediatricians with a cycle that ends in 2020 the ability to enroll in their next cycle. There is no documentation necessary from you, and these points should now be visible in your ABP Portfolio. For those pediatricians who have already completed their Part 2 and Part 4 activity requirements for their MOC cycle ending in 2020, thank you! We will award 25 Part 2 points and 25 Part 4 points for COVID-19-related learning and improvement in January 2021 to count toward your next cycle. Every pediatrician whose cycle ends in 2020 will still need to log in to their ABP Portfolio and enroll in their next cycle by Dec. 17, 2020 at 3 p.m. ET. If you have any questions, please reach out to [email protected].
MOC Cycles NOT Ending in 2020 – The ABP has awarded 25 Part 2 points and 25 Part 4 points to all pediatricians maintaining certification to recognize the commitment to lifelong learning and improvement during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no documentation necessary from you, and these points should now be visible in your ABP Portfolio.
MOCA-Peds - Given the wide-ranging impact of COVID-19 on individual pediatricians, we are increasing the flexibility of the MOCA-Peds platform even further. Although we already automatically drop the four lowest-scored quarters in MOCA-Peds before calculating final scores, current MOCA-Peds participants will now receive two more dropped quarters to use in 2020 if they need them. If your score during any two quarters in 2020 negatively impacts your overall performance, we will discard these quarters when calculating your final scaled score. These measures afford you complete flexibility with MOCA-Peds during 2020. If you wish to continue participating in MOCA-Peds during 2020, please feel free to do so. Conversely, if you wish to unplug from MOCA-Peds during the pandemic and concentrate your energies elsewhere, you may certainly choose that approach without any penalty. Proctored MOC Exams - Where regional regulations permit reopening, most Prometric testing centers in the United States and Canada have resumed testing at either full or limited occupancy. If regulations require your exam to be rescheduled, Prometric will work closely with you to find new appointment dates and times that work for your schedules, and they will waive any rescheduling fees. Prometric provides current information on their COVID-19 response and actions on their public website. Check our MOC Exam Dates and Locations page for current application and exam dates.
Training Disruptions Due to COVID-19 for Residents and Fellows Graduating in 2021 - Residents and fellows who are concerned about training disruptions secondary to the pandemic should contact their program directors and coordinators. In response to inquiries about decisions by the ABP regarding Absences from Training secondary to disruptions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, please see our letter (PDF) to graduate medical education program leaders. Please do not hesitate to contact us through the Program Portal with any questions.
ABP Subboards and Committees - Subboard and committee meetings are currently being held remotely. Participants will be provided remote access details.

The Pass Machine General Pediatrics 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 in 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 CME 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 System for Award Management (SAM) database and can accept government checks and credit cards.

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.
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.

What should I do if I don’t pass my board exam?
