macOS Update Affects Physicians Taking Knowledge Check-In Remotely Expand/Collapse the ABIM alert.

If you are scheduled to take the Knowledge Check-In remotely and use an Apple device running the latest macOS (Catalina), ABIM was recently made aware of a technical issue that may affect your ability to take the Knowledge Check-In.

The macOS update does not include support for Adobe Air, meaning the software used to deliver the Knowledge Check-In online is not compatible with systems running on Catalina as of October 7, 2019.

If you are taking the Knowledge Check-In on a Mac and want to confirm your system is still compatible, please take the system check again. If you are unable to access a compatible system or would like to reschedule to a test center, please call our dedicated physician support line at 1-800-606-0259 as soon as possible.

Journal Articles by Topic

The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) compiles relevant research from across the medical community in this library on several topics related to physician knowledge, assessment in training, board certification, ongoing certification, and physician professionalism.

We update this robust resource of evidence from several top-tier medical journals regularly, but it is not a comprehensive list. The American Board of Medical Specialties (of which ABIM is a member board) has additional resources in their Continuing Certification Reference Center, a dynamic database of literature relevant to board certification and Maintenance of Certification (MOC).

We welcome your suggestions about this section of our site. Note: Some articles might require a subscription to the publication in order to view.
