Rotations ABFM

Recommended Posts

https://www.theabfm.org/become-certified/i-am-certified-country-outside-united-states

 

there is a CFPC pathway that does not require 3rd year of training.

 

i think the ABFM exam is much more straightforward....there are tons of practice questions, we have "intraining exams" every year...so a ton of practice...the intraining exams are available if you have an ABFM account, i think only 3 years worth though.....only difference is the guidelines, units are different.

its a multiple choice exam only, no OSCE....

IIRC doing the alternate pathway is a bit tricky, you have to somehow be a resident of the US  for a period of time for example and be active in FM in the US...

  • You have been resident in the United States for least six months"
  • You are actively involved in family medicine in the United States.

Hi

how to add a third year to the FM residency I order to qualify for taking ABFM?

 

  • Do a +1 in EM, Geriatrics, Palliative care somewhere in Canada.
