Welcome to "Get to Know ABOG," the section of our site dedicated to providing information and resources to OB GYN residents.
ABOG's goal is to help residents begin to understand earlier in their medical journey what board certification is, why it's important, and why ABOG should be their choice when it's time to get certified. As a resident, we hope you find what you need here. But if you have a question about certification, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. Any of our exam team members are happy to help you.
We encourage you to check and be sure we have accurate contact information in your ABOG profile (including a mobile number) so we can alert you about updates or new certification requirements. And, should you require it as you approach the certifying (oral) exam, check out the new lactation rooms specially designed for privacy and comfort.
