14 Board Review Courses

These 14 courses were designed by expert AIHM faculty from their respective fields.  Experts based their courses on the study references provided by ABOIM (the main reference being Rakel’s Integrative Medicine textbook) and each expert faculty reviewed pertinent sections in Rakel’s, as well as secondary references listed, for their area of expertise to ensure their review section covered pertinent information. Each of the 10 domains outlined by ABOIM in the exam blueprint are covered proportionally to give you the most comprehensive review available.

This 253 question practice exam allows you to test yourself in each individual domain and see correct and incorrect answers as you go, as well as take the full exam in one-sitting to prep for the 4-hr actual exam allowing you to test your timing as well as hone in on specific areas of focus.
