Preparing for the Exam

As a program director, faculty member, fellow or chief resident, you are expected to stress the importance of integrity and ethical behavior among your residents and fellows. We recognize that preparing for their board exams can be a very stressful time and hope that you convey to both trainees and faculty the seriousness of item sharing, cheating or illicit board review, and go over the possible consequences of such behavior to their career and program with them.

As they prepare for the exam, we suggest that you:

  • Refer them to the Professional Integrity and Exam Ethics section of this website.
  • Pre-approve your candidates’ board curriculum/syllabus.
  • Check in on board prep sessions within your program as you would with morning reports and noon conferences.
