Passing the emergency medicine written certi cation examination is an important milestone in the process o becoming a board-certi ed emergency physician.

The Quali ying Examination measures core knowledge, and, to many who must take it, it is an intimidatinghurdle. Every year approximately 10% o examinees ail the test and must retake it the ollowing year.Given that many test takers are completing their residency and may be moving to start a new job in the months leading up to the test, it is clear that there is a need or a ocused, easy-to-use review book to help them prepare.

improve your score on the Quali ying Examination.

You will be presented with a case scenario and a question, ollowed by ve answer options.
