    BoardVitals.com Launches New Program to Assist with Medical Board Exams

     

    Research shows that the pass rate for those taking certain medical board exams has fallen to 84 percent for first time test takers. The reason cited for this decline is that those taking the tests lack the study habits and skills needed to help them adequately prepare for such an exam. BoardVitals.com has launched a new program aimed at helping people improve their study habits when preparing to take their medical board exams. The site offers 24-hour access to a database of peer-reviewed medical board exam review questions, and people that use the platform have an eight percent higher pass rate than the national average.

    “While we may be new, we are highly effective,” explains Daniel Lambert, chief executive officer of BoardVitals.com. “People have found that the site offers the questions and test preparation that they need for their board reviews. It’s essential information and we have presented it in a way that is easy to use and access.”

    There are currently thousands of paying physicians who are using the platform, which is part of First Growth Venture Network and was part of the Blueprint Health Accelerator. During the first round of funding, which was led by Rothenberg Ventures and Kurt Walters, the site raised half a million.

    All questions in the BoardVitals.com database have been reviewed by experts in the field. The questions, which are aimed at helping people score higher on their board reviews, are accessible by phone, tablet, and computer. The site allows users to create practice tests and uses advanced statistics that will help people be able to identify where their weaknesses and strengths may lie. They also offer a 100 percent guarantee on the service.

    People in a wide variety of medical and health fields are using the site, including those seeking board reviews for practicing physicians, residents, and medical students. It serves those working in the fields of psychiatry, pathology, emergency medical, neurology, pediatrics, cardiology, and family medicine, surgery, among others.


    “The service has gotten off to a great start and we look forward to what the future holds for it,” added Lambert. “This service is essential for anyone needing board reviews. It provides an easy and affordable way to improve, prepare, and score higher.”
