ABIM. For over 20 years, MedStudy has excelled in determining and teaching what a clinically competent Internal Medicine physician should know. The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) tests this exact same pool of knowledge. MedStudy’s expertise, demonstrated by the superb pass rate of those who use it in their studies, is in the actual leaching” of this knowledge in a clear, learner-friendly manner that results in a stronger knowledge base, improved clinical skills, and better Board results. Although what we teach is in sync with what the Boards test, MedStudy has no affiliation with the ABIM, and our authors, editors and reviewers have no access to ABIM exam content.
Our material is developed as original work by MedStudy physician authors, with additional input from expert contributors, based on their extensive backgrounds in professional medical education. This content is designed to include subject matter typically tested in certification and recertification exams as outlined in the ABIM’s publicly available exam blueprints but makes no use of, and divulges no details of, ABIM’s proprietary exam content.
A note on editorial style: MedStudy follows a standardized approach to the naming of diseases, using the non-possessive form when the proper name of a disease is followed by a common noun. So you will see phrasing such as “This patient would warrant workup for Crohn disease” (as opposed to “Crohn’s disease”). Possessive form will be used, however, when an entity is referred to solely by its proper name without a following common noun. An example of this would be ‘The symptoms are classic for Crohn’s.” Styles used in today’s literature can be highly arbitrary, some using possessive and some not, but we believe consistency is important. It has become nearly obsolete to use the possessive form in terminology such as Lou Gehrig’s disease, Klinefelter’s syndrome, and others. The AMA Manual of Style, JAMA, and Scientific Style and Format are among the publications that are now promoting and using the non-possessive form. We concur with this preference.
