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 Pulmonary Disease 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 Pulmonary Disease 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 Pulmonary Disease Certification and Pulmonary Disease MOC exam blueprints. This way, you’ll focus on all of the exam topics and keywords with no wasted effort.
Board-Experienced Faculty: The Pulmonary Certification and Pulmonary MOC course features board-certified faculty experienced in teaching Pulmonary Disease board exam preparation. Thus, every lecture is up-to-date, medically accurate and entirely board-relevant.
Pulmonary Disease 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 800+ Pulmonary Disease 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® Pulmonary Disease 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® Pulmonary Disease 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 Pulmonary Disease practice questions include detailed, referenced explanations. So you’re not only testing your knowledge of pulmonary diseases – you’re learning the “how” and “why” behind every question.

“I’m in downtown Chicago to highlight the anytime/anywhere/offline flexibility of The Pass Machine course. This Pulmonary Disease prep course features 33 hours of laser-focused lectures and 800+ 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,

Read What Your Colleagues Are Saying About This Course
“I used the API for my pulmonary board prep for spring of 2015 and passed with an overall score well above the median. The API provided an excellent collection of materials with a study guide and enlightening online presentations that could be viewed multiple times and even at faster speeds so as to decrease study time. I did review the ACCP study lectures as well and found the API was more up to date, easier to use and had great speakers covering the pertinent material. If I had to choose, I would use the API study series as it is cost effective, deals with the core curriculum and is user friendly. I will use the API for my ABIM Sleep review in the near future.”
Milledge Newton, MD, Valdosta, GA

I thank Jack and his team to accomplish my goal”

Pulmonary Disease MOC Testimonials
“I passed with a good score, I am very pleased the way your course layout is. Even though I watched 2014 course videos, it did help me for my board exam and in my practice too . You have a excellent team of speakers. I felt there was some deficiency in ventilator mechanic questions, which I found were difficult in the exam. Overall very happy, and would use the course again, and would recommend it strongly. Thank you again, for putting up a nice team.”
Srinivas Vodnala, MD, Cypress, TX
“I passed my pulmonary medicine recertification with flying color with the help of API board review. This year I will be using API again for critical care medicine review and looking forward to similar success. The system is great because you can do it at your convenience wherever you want rather than paying to stay in a hotel for board review.”
Susan Rohr, MD, Sioux Falls, SD

Satish K. Mittal, MD, FCCP, Pilsgrove, NJ

Muhammad Fuad Bangash, MD, Mequon, WI

James Rish, MD, Tupplo, MS

American Board of Internal Medicine Covid-19 Update
This information is updated weekly. For the most current update, please visit the ABIM website.
Update September 9, 2020:
ABIM is offering additional test dates on 12/14/20 and 12/15/20 for physicians registered to take a subspecialty certification exam. Before heading to your appointment, please read more about what Pearson VUE is doing to ensure the safety of test takers.
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.
