About BoardVitals


Strives to provide a high-quality, affordable, effective, and powerful board review tool that can be used by practicing physicians, residents, and medical students.

BoardVitals doesn’t just provide a question bank, they provide up-to-date explanations from the literature with their answers and give you detailed feedback and assessment of your progress broken down by subject areas. With each question you can see how you compare to your peers, and gauge the difficulty of the question by what percentage of your peers answered it correctly or chose the same option you did. The BoardVitals full-length practice exam is a great way to judge your overall preparedness and compare to your peers to estimate what your score might be on the real thing.


The BoardVitals content is referenced to many major dermatology, surgery, pediatric, cardiology, gastroenterology, obstetrics, gynecology, emergency medicine, internal medicine, family medicine, pathology, cytology, laboratory, psychiatry, neurology, and psychopharmacology texts and journals.

The primary author for each question bank is board certified in that specialty, and, in most cases, has taken and passed the initial or re-certifying exam within the past few years. The vast majority of the BoardVitals primary authors have scored in the top tier on their Step exams.

In addition to the primary author, BoardVitals typically contracts with dozens of writers for each question bank. From those, they usually keep about a third. Each of the writers are assigned a specific portion of the blueprint for their specialty/sub-specialty.

BoardVitals uses a multi-tiered editing process. Each question from the author and the contractors are run past their internal team of medical editors, which checks for medical accuracy, grammar, formatting, and that the content follows the blueprint.

The content is then continually updated based on feedback from faculty and students. The feedback loop goes to the BoardVitals editors, who review each piece of feedback. New updates are added as the feedback is verified. They process hundreds feedback emails per week, many of which suggest updates or fixes across their 60,000+ questions.

What others are saying...

"Board vitals is the ideal complementary review source for any resident seeking to maximize their board exam review. The otolaryngology questions challenge you to apply your knowledge of frequently-tested ENT principles in a variety of fields, ranging from otology and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery to pediatric otolaryngoloy and head & neck oncology. Each question is written in a board-style format and each answer offers a detailed review of key concepts. Otolaryngology residents, myself included, have been waiting for this type of review material to be available to us and it's finally here. I highly recommend it!"

-- Danny Soares, Otolaryngology/Plastics Fellow at Emory University

"This question bank is exactly what I need to prepare to take my pediatric boards. The scope of the material is extremely high yield and really focuses on what I need to know to be most success ful when taking the boards. The answer discussions for each question are well written and are mini-lectures in and unto themselves. I would recommend this question bank to anyone looking to improve their general pediatric knowledge."

-- Dr. Ellsworth, Neonatology Fellow, Mayo Clinic
