FMCLA: Understanding the new ABFM Exam Alternative


The Family Medicine Certification Longitudinal Assessment (FMCLA) pilot is an exam alternative for ABFM diplomates. Pilot participants will answer up to 25 questions online quarterly in lieu of the one-day exam. You may answer questions at anytime and may use clinical references during the assessment. To satisfy your exam requirements, you will need to answer 300 questions over a four-year period and achieve a passing score.
