Join CardioExchange for Cocktails — and Reduce Your Board Prep Anxieties!

Attending ACC 2012? CardioExchange will be hosting an informal get-together in Chicago with cocktails and a discussion of the ABIM boards and recertification exams. Come enjoy some light food and drink, mingle with CardioExchange Editors, Contributors, and Members, and get some great tips to aid in your exam prep.

Our panel will include:

  • Susan Cheng, MD, Instructor of Medicine at Harvard, who recently passed her cardiology boards
  • Ben Freed, MD, Cardiology Imaging Fellow at University of Chicago, who also recently passed his cardiology boards
  • John Harold, MD, Incoming President-Elect of the American College of Cardiology, Clinical Professor of Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and a former member of the ABIM Board of Directors Internal Medicine Test Writing Committee

Harlan Krumholz will be the MC and will also be happy to answer some questions, as a member of the ABIM board and as someone who just recertified. And we’ll have a representative from the ABIM on hand to answer any logistical questions.

Our panel can’t answer any specific questions about the content of the exam, of course, but they will be happy to talk about its purpose, format, and blueprint. Most importantly, you can find out what those who took it recently found helpful — or a waste of time — when it came to preparations.

The event will be on Sunday, March 25th from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at:

Café Spiaggia

Level Two
980 North Michigan Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60611

Dress is casual. Attendees will get a free one-year digital subscription to Journal Watch Cardiology. But space is limited, and you have to RSVP with Matthew O’Rourke (just e-mail

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago.
