PGY 2: Laura Bohman, DPM from Cambridge Health Alliance

Each received a $500 Visa gift card for their achievement. This year, 862 residents took the In-training examination; 542 in November and 320 in May.
The In-training examination is a voluntary self-assessment tool available to all current residents and can be used to prepare for the ABPM board qualification examination. The ABPM In-training examination is administered in a short answer format and covers material under each of the following sections and related subsections: biomechanics, orthopedics, wound care, medicine and surgical criteria.
“The number of residents taking the ABPM In-training Examination has steadily increased over the past six years, as program directors and residents have increasingly appreciated the essential importance of medicine and biomechanics to overall patient management, including surgical management”, stated Marc A. Benard, DPM, ABPM Executive Director.
