The ABNS strives hard to create a level “playing field” for all candidates applying for ABNS certification, as such:
- The ABNS discourages review of a candidate’s actual oral exam cases or slide presentations at any oral board preparation course. Course content and recommendations may not be consistent with the actual ABNS examination.
- Candidates are encouraged to review their oral board cases and PowerPoint with colleagues, residency or practice mentors to prepare for the oral exam.
- Guest examiners and directors will not participate in any oral board preparation course for the 12-month period following their participation as an ABNS examiner.
