General Knowledge: AFP By Topic - American Family Physician or UpToDateHey guys, for those of you in Family Medicine Residency, what question bank/s have you been using throughout your residency for general knowledge and/or board preparation?
I used Uworld for Step 3 and then the ABFM exam. I also used the ABFM iPhone app, but found that Uworld made me think more and I liked it better.Hey guys, for those of you in Family Medicine Residency, what question bank/s have you been using throughout your residency for general knowledge and/or board preparation?
So how effective was the bolded strategy. Asking for a friend.I had this question as a resident...
I think getting as much shadowing/clinical experience prior to starting is more valuable than any qbank out there - since treating/manging patients is a different experience from answering questions....when you treat patient you are using a different set of skills and drawing from your knowledge
the approach I took was I became a vegetable and relaxed before residency and figured everyone would be in the same boat as me
the best questions to prepare for the general knowledge, residency, ABFM boards are the ITEs and quarterly CSKA - they do the best job reflecting the actual ABFM exam - you should have access to at least 3 years worth in your portfolio, the more you do the better
the AAFP online questions/ABFM - alot of htese questions seem to be just recycled from the ITE
AFP articles are really good too if you have time - you will see that alot of the ITE questions reference AFP articles or NEJM
I used Rosh, UWORLD, NEJM+- pretty much the other main qbanks out there, after passing the exam the only other bank I would have focused on would be NEJM+since it had questions from all the additional modules, etc.
Uworld and USMLE is a different style of questions. It’s effective for nbme and step not so much for abfm. You don’t see any zebras...well known I saw of on the exam.I used Uworld for Step 3 and then the ABFM exam. I also used the ABFM iPhone app, but found that Uworld made me think more and I liked it better.
I would have just focused on abfm ite and cska. As many ite you can do then maybe nejm.AFP question bank. Seconding NEJM qbank here. Will be using the ABFM board prep course and +/- Uworld.
