I took the cardiology board exam a few weeks ago. I'm starting to get very nervous about the results. I'm especially worried about the multiple choice section. Anyone know of people failing the exam because of the multiple choice section?

What happens if you fail the cardiology boards? Can you continue to practice until the next exam?

This will depend on your contract. Mine says I have to pass my subspecialty boards within 5 years of starting...doesn't say anything about how many times I can take it to pass.
