On any given day in a family medical practice, you likely serve patients of all ages with a variety of acute and chronic problems, where you work between diagnosis and management and have to communicate effectively and manage your records and staff. NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review is an online adaptive learning platform developed with busy clinicians in mind.

Relevant Content Backed by Experts

Designed to support you in your continuous lifelong learning goals and prepare you for the exam, this product from NEJM Group has been prepared according to exacting editorial standards to exceed your expectations. Family Medicine Board Review is relevant to the exam: the question bank and exams are guided by the ABFM blueprint. NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review is also relevant to your clinical practice, offering learning and feedback that will help you handle the real-world challenges that appear in your practice regularly.

NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review offers you the most accurate and relevant materials:

  • Created and rigorously reviewed by our panel of nearly 300 clinicians from leading medical centers, as well as dozens of primary care and subspecialty expert reviewers.
  • Based on the best evidence available, with links to further reading from many sources, including guidelines, review articles, cases, and original research — in addition we provide free links to New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) review articles and cases normally available only to NEJM subscribers.
  • Carefully reviewed and edited by family physicians who are teachers and active clinicians with firsthand knowledge of the day-to-day challenges that family physicians face.

A Learning Product That Adapts to Your Study Needs

Family Medicine Board Review uses adaptive learning technology to quickly assess the subjects you know well and identifies the areas where you need reinforcement. It then delivers more of what you need and less of what you already know. Adaptive learning means you’ll spend your time efficiently, focusing on what you need to learn and review.

Developed in partnership with Area9 Learning, a global leader in adaptive learning, our solution is the first in the field to incorporate this emerging technology based on the best evidence regarding how people absorb and retain knowledge. The system provides an opportunity for a learning “recharge” at appropriate times, to help prevent memory decay.

Conveniently Earn Credits While You Learn

You deserve full credit for the time and effort that you commit to your professional development. With Family Medicine Board Review, you can earn up to 270 AAFP Prescribed credits with easy reporting by date that lets you keep track of what you’ve earned when. Physician Assistants can also earn 20 SA credits (AAPA Category 1 Self-Assessment CME credit toward Certification Maintenance).

Get the Feedback You Need to Continuously Improve

NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review tracks and reports your progress and performance, so that you’ll be able to:

  • Set your goals for study, along with timelines for achieving specific milestones
  • Find out how you’re performing and — if you’re working toward a clear goal — whether you’re on schedule to meet your predefined goals
  • Identify which specialties you’re finding most challenging, as well as which topics within each specialty need more focus
  • Define the learning objectives you need to work on
  • Determine your level of confidence with the information

As your proficiency steadily improves and you gain an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses, you can approach the exam and your daily clinical practice with true confidence.

In your reports section, you’ll be able to see how you’re doing by discipline, decision focus, patient age, location, and urgency of care, and identify where you have a gap between self-confidence and ability.

Take Practice Exams to Build Confidence for Exam Day

NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review offers two practice exams as another measure to track your performance and help you prepare for your exam. The practice test questions are designed to align with ABFM exam questions and to common, relevant, and challenging clinical scenarios.

Here’s how NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review practice exams prepare you for exam day:

  • Each exam offers 60 questions in a timed 2-hour online test that mirrors the format of the boards, so you’ll be ready for the real thing.
  • A pause feature allows you to step away if you like.
  • Practice exams include key elements of feedback once you complete the exam:
    • How you performed in each focus area
    • How your performance compared with others
    • Important learning points
    • Detailed feedback and citations
  • You can use the practice exams at any point in your exam preparation, depending on how you work best—it’s up to you!
    • Use the exam before you begin preparing, to evaluate and direct where you want to start learning in the product.
    • Try the practice exam after initial studying, to assess yourself partway through the learning.
    • Use the practice exam at the end of your preparation, to get your timing down the week before your boards.
  • See how your results compare with those of your peers.

Learn on Your Schedule — Whenever & Wherever It Works for You

NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review doesn’t just adapt to your performance — it adapts to your lifestyle. The format of bite-size questions, rather than large chapters and reviews, allows you to fit it in anytime — even when you only have a minute or two.

Use Family Medicine Board Review on your iPad or Android tablet to enjoy all the functionality of the desktop version on the go. Or, focus in on the question modules and Recharge feature by using your iPhone and Android smartphone (these versions are optimized for the smaller screen.)

Family Medicine Board Review is available for you on your time — whether it’s in line at the supermarket, in the parking lot while waiting for your child’s soccer practice to let out, or during an unplanned minute between patients.
