2017 PEDIATRIC BOARD EXAM RESULTS ARE IN!

Check Out the 2017 Exam Results!

It's been a long wait, but it's wonderful to see that the 2017 pediatric board exam results are FINALLY out! We are SO PROUD of our PBR members. The scores the stories that have been sent in have blown me away! And I'm using stories and feedback from our members to create the ultimate guide to helping high-risk pediatricians pass.

Today, I'm especially proud of the many members that have turned a failed pediatric boards experience into a passing one. Many of them were the pediatricians that I coached and mentored personally in Atlanta. All of those wonderful emails and messages have been tugging on my heart strings because helping doctors FINALLY pass after they have had MULTIPLE failed attempts is one of the greatest accomplishments that my team and I look forward to every year! Here's an example of an email that we received from a Live Test-Taking Strategies Course member:

Ashish, I did it. I can't thank you enough for creating an amazing system to keep me on on track with my studying. And the $2000 for the live weekend test taking course was well worth it. Doing the technique during the test kept me focused and allowed me to eliminate wrong answers. Thank you for all the great advice, sticking to the material, memorize, memorize, memorize then practice practice practice. After 4 failed attempts it was exhilirating to finally read the words, “we are PLEASED to announce you PASSED!”…

I also wanted to let you know that since passing boards, I began looking for new jobs and in June I will be a pediatric hospitalist at University of Chicago, which means more pay, benefits, an exciting new field of medicine and more time at home with my girls. Thank you soooo much!

– Dr. Yessenia Castro-Caballero, Board Certified Pediatrician

Dr. Castro finally passed on her FIFTH attempt because she followed all of the advice that PBR had to offer. Now she's making about $20,000 more per year, and she's in a job that she loves! I had the chance to meet her at the American Academy of Pediatrics' conference and even recorded this little great little video.

PBR’s 2018 Pediatric Board Review Course – A Complete SYSTEM

PBR's NEW 2018 Pediatric Board Review EXPERIENCE is HERE!

2017 Pediatric Board Review Course“Test Day” can be a terribly stressful and anxiety provoking time for the pediatric board exam. The key to avoiding that stress and anxiety is to have a solid foundation and to make the experience almost mechanical. The only way to do that is to become so familiar with your pediatric board review course that you know it inside and out.

PBR's 2018 pediatric board review course is a complete SYSTEM, including an online, offline, personal, and community-driven EXPERIENCE. As physicians, we're trained to tackle hundreds to thousands of pages in order to learn “everything.” But this is the WRONG approach to studying for the boards. We're also taught to read questions from the top, cover the answers and take a “top down” approach on vignette style board questions. This, too, is HORRIBLE advice.

PBR helps you streamline your approach and gives you a proven method to pass your pediatric board exam. Through Pediatrics Board Review, you will:

  • Learn more than enough pediatric content in order to get a score that is ABOVE the national average
  • Understand the reasons to AVOID pediatric “board review questions” as a source of learning
  • Understand why you should use pediatric board review questions as PRACTICE questions (hint: it's called test-taking strategy)
  • Learn about test-taking strategies that allow you to answer board questions quickly and accurately even when you're not fully knowledgeable about a topic
  • Discover a schedule and streamlined approach to preparing for the boards that will liberate you from the confusion and overwhelm that you're currently experiencing

The PBR Certification SystemTM Includes…

The PBR Certification System

  • The Clarity Expander: Understand the proper mindset, the tools, the study strategies, and the right study resources needed to prepare for a very difficult exam. For example, did you know that the AAP PREP questions are NOT the best study questions? Or that “information overwhelm” from using too many resources is one of the top 3 reasons that good pediatricians fail the boards? Or that you should NOT try to study every single topic laid out in the American Board of Pediatrics content outline? Or that you should NOT tailor your studies to address low scores from your score report (if you failed last year)?
  • The Retention Maximizer: Maximize your chances of content retention through common sense explanations, innovative “DOUBLE TAKE” topics which are repeated throughout the Core Study Guide, PBR “PEARLS” of knowledge that are guaranteed to show up on the exam, “story-based” mnemonics, and concise yet comprehensive content.
  • The Repetition Amplifier: Utilize multimodality studying through online videos, downloadable MP3s, mobile access, an online picture atlas, and other creative techniques that allow you to review the same core material multiple times. Technology has changed everything, and you must allow it to enhance your efficiency and your interest in the material. We even have a tool that allows you to review 25 hours of video content in just 12 hours.
  • The Strategic Approach: Learn Test-Taking Strategies that allow you to systematically approach, dissect, and answer board-style questions on standardized exams. There ARE rules that you can learn to help you “beat the board game” and pass your exam. There is also a structured approach to processing every single board-style question that you come across in order to make the experience error-free and robotic.
  • The Network Experience: Do NOT study in isolation. Utilize the support of hundreds of pediatricians in the PBR Facebook CREW to help you quickly answer your board review questions. Work with Team PBR to create a study schedule specifically designed for you. Attend live webinars with content experts and OUTSOURCE your questions to us so that you can focus on your studying. You SHOULD NOT have to do this alone, and the PBR community is here to support you.

Through videos like the one below, you will begin to quickly understand why PBR is not a “traditional” pediatric board review company. We're focused on helping physicians in ways that have never been done before. In the video below, I share with you the arrival of the NEW 2018 Edition of the PBR Core Study Guide, the NEW 2018 Edition of the Question & Answer books, two NEW Test-Taking Strategies Course, and some other exciting news!

2015 Pediatric Board Review Course“How Will the 2018 Pediatrics Board Review EXPERIENCE Help Me?”

HERE'S WHAT YOUR TYPICAL BOARD REVIEW EXPERIENCE IS LIKE

As a pediatrician, when you work with a traditional board review company, you will most likely get a hardcopy study guide, perhaps a pediatric board review DVD course, and you may attend a live board review course. Then, you will likely decide that you would also like to buy resources from yet ANOTHER company so that you have it as a reference, or so that you don't miss out on additional topics/content. And if you're really ambitious, you might even keep a copy of Nelson's closeby so that you can go through it once prior to the boards.

You will usually make an effort to study as much you can, from as many resources as you can. You do so in isolation because of competing demands on your time (work, spouse, kids, social obligations, sleep), and you have a difficult time coming up with a good study schedule that you can actually stick to.
