The American Board of Radiology has instituted a wide-ranging series of changes, which will affect first the class of trainees beginning residency in 2010. These changes include a reorientation of both the written and oral examination to be designated instead as a qualifying and certifying examination.

The qualifying exam is to be taken in the 36th month of the training period. It will be comprehensive, image-rich, and computer-based, and will incorporate among other didactic categories, physics and general social-economic matters. The certifying exam is to be taken 15 months after the completion of residency. It may, by the applicant’s choosing, encompass all areas of radiology or only one of several subspecialties.

The exam will be computer-based and will be taken at several testing areas, not in one central location as before. The purpose of this review is to answer questions that have arisen in light of the introduction of this fundamental change in board timing, content, context, and philosophy.
