Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment (LLS):
- Requires ongoing participation in high-quality learning activities.
- Is delivered through article-reading assignments from peer-reviewed literature on clinically relevant patient-management information, best-practice guidelines, and research.
Annually, ABOG delivers about 160 article options to your ABOG physician portal page. They're released in three 50-article batches, usually in January, May, and August (though some articles may appear at other times during the year).
You have two opportunities to answer questions for each article correctly. If your initial answer is incorrect, you'll get feedback and a second chance to answer. For information on the pilot program and the opportunity to opt-out from taking the Year 6 Exam, go to tabbed section titled Performance Pathway.
Specialist and Subspecialist Diplomates have different reading assignments. See Article Assignments for details.
