Practice ExamExternal Link
IDSA, in cooperation with the National Board of Medical Examiners, has created a timed Practice Exam. The exam is designed to provide an opportunity to prepare for the ID Board Exam. It contains 50 case-based multiple-choice questions as a general review of infectious diseases topics. Like the Board Exam, the Practice Exam is timed. Users are allotted up to one hour and 40 minutes to take the exam. Upon completion of the exam, a score, along with a report containing learning objectives for items answered incorrectly, will be provided. The Practice Exam is available online. The non-member price is $150; members receive a $50 discount. New users must register to access the exam. Questions can be directed to PEtechsupport@idsociety.org.
