Welcome to Pediatrics Board Review!
Hi! My name is Ashish Goyal, and I'm really excited to work with you as you prepare to pass the initial certification exam given by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). I created Pediatrics Board Review (PBR) to do one thing… help pediatricians and pediatric residents pass the boards on their FIRST try. PBR is a blog, a study guide, a social media study tool, and best of all, it's a community that you rely on for all of your pediatric questions.
I've heard so many stories about pediatricians failing the boards up to 3 times, and it's horrifying. THERE'S NO REASON THE AVERAGE PEDIATRICIAN CAN'T PASS! Trust me… I didn't do so well the first time, but I'm an average guy with an average brain, and I ended up passing the pediatric boards by 130 points. The reason I've started this site is help pediatric residents and pediatricians get rid of the confusion and the mystery that surrounds the boards. Once you know what to study, and how to study it, passing the boards really isn't that hard.
I look forward to sharing a ton of valuable information with you. I'm especially passionate about efficiency in studying and the use of a systems based approach to limit the amount of time I have to spend in front of the books. I don't have a great memory, but I do have an odd ability to create some great memory aids. Studying for these standardized tests can consume your life. I promise… if you follow my advice and let me show you the “what to study” and how to study it efficiently:
- The confusion and frustration will disappear
- The efficiency of studying with the PBR's materials will give you time to spend with your family and friends
- Instead of being filled with anxiety, you'll actually get to relax a little and enjoy the summer
- You WILL pass the boards! And that's a 100% guarantee.
Studying for the ABP exam was tough, and taking it the first time was one of the worst experiences of my academic life. I've created PBR to help you avoid the mistakes I made, and then navigate the exam with confidence and success. If you'd like to get a hold of me, you can easily do so via the “Contact” page above.
