The ABNS strives hard to create a level “playing field” for all candidates applying for ABNS certification, as such:

 

1) 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.

2) Candidates are encouraged to review their oral board cases and PowerPoint with colleagues, residency or practice mentors to prepare for the oral exam.

3) 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.
