Stay up to date in Gastroenterology with 700 GI MOC targeted review questions. The BoardVitals Gastroenterology MOC Question Bank offers questions that are directly relevant to the exam: multiple choice questions (mostly focused around patient scenarios) with a single best answer.



Developed by top faculty and practicing physicians, BoardVitals helps thousands of doctors prepare for board certification exams and complete their CME requirements. BoardVitals is trusted by leading medical institutions including Harvard, Yale, Mt. Sinai, and Duke.

I used the online BoardVitals and found that the 600+ questions for my specialty were pretty comprehensive with answers to each question and a convenient monitoring of my progress. I could choose as short or long a test as desired and then review missed questions to hone areas requiring more review. It is also quite affordable and perhaps most importantly really preps you for test-taking skills.” - Steven Taylor, MD
