As a family medicine physician, you likely see patients of all ages with a variety of acute and chronic problems. You juggle myriad activities as you diagnose and treat patients and perform countless tasks while managing your busy practice. For these reasons, the Family Medicine board review you choose needs to provide the most time-effective solution possible for engaging in lifelong learning, meeting continuing education requirements, and successfully preparing for the ABFM exam or Family Medicine Longitudinal Assessment (FMCLA). That’s why we developed NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review with busy clinicians like you in mind.
Authentic Adaptive Learning Proven to Work
Other programs that claim to have Adaptive Learning, fall short. NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine Board Review uses comprehensive adaptive learning technology to quickly identify areas of knowledge where you have gaps or need reinforcement. Unlike other board review programs, it delivers more of what you need to learn and less of what you already know, saving you valuable study time.
It does this by first assessing your existing knowledge and then leveraging machine learning to create the perfect learning path for you. This AI-driven technology was designed based on the best evidence about how people absorb and retain knowledge. The system even recommends when a learning “refresh” is in order to help prevent memory decay. This allows you to maximize your time preparing for the Family Medicine Board Exam or FMCLA, while also keeping your clinical knowledge sharp so you can deliver optimal patient care.
Most Comprehensive Family Medicine Question Bank
NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine has the most comprehensive family medicine question bank available with over 5,000 questions mapped to the ABFM blueprint. Our gold-standard questions are like the ones you’ll see on the ABFM exam or FMCLA, and are relevant to clinical practice to help you handle the real-world challenges you face every day.
NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine questions are:
- Just like questions you’ll see on the ABFM Exam and FMCLA, so you can practice answering questions effectively and within imposed time limits.
- Based on the best evidence available with access to further reading in guidelines, reviews, cases, and research including links to any cited articles from the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), normally available only to subscribers
- 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
- Carefully vetted and edited by physicians who are educators and active clinicians with firsthand knowledge of the day-to-day challenges that you face
Best Family Medicine Board Review Questions
The best family medicine board review questions leverage the power of the Testing Effect. Answering questions about new information primes your brain to receive and store it. And answering questions that require you to recall information you have previously learned strengthens connections to it. Research shows that by answering questions about new or previously learned information, you’ll more readily retrieve it from your stored memory in the future. NEJM Knowledge+ Family Medicine questions are designed to use the testing effect to strengthen your learning and make future recall and retrieval easier.
