Remote Oral Exam
The American Board of Radiology (ABR) is a non-profit association that oversees the certification and ongoing professional development of physician specialists. The ABR certifies its diplomates through a comprehensive process involving educational requirements, professional peer evaluation, and examination.
One of the main pieces of the ABR’s certification process is an oral exam. In the past this exam was taken in person at a conference setting. People would travel to attend and take their exams, which would last a few days. That all changed with the advent of COVID-19; travel was too risky. Exams were still necessary, though, so the ABR needed to bring the oral exam online.
