Content will include: 

  • Case-based questions to challenge your knowledge in the extensive scope of this specialty.
  • Thorough explanations of preferred responses with the most up-to-date references available for your review.
  • Important points highlighted with graphics and charts.
  • Questions and critiques based on In-Training, Certification, and Maintenance of Certification Examination content specifications from the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP).
The PREP self-assessment learning activities provide a monthly selection of challenging, case-based questions, each one complete with an extensive discussion of the relevant science, the rationale for the preferred answer, and a list of evidence-based references for further reading. The convenient online format offers rich supplemental media, instant feedback, peer performance comparison, full-text searching, and two different assessment modes.
