Do you have an image—radiograph, ultrasound, electrocardiogram—that
could provide the basis for a good examination question? American Board ofEmergency Medicine (ABEM) diplomates can now submit stimuli to ABEM for
inclusion on the EMS certification examination.
To submit an image for consideration, go to the ABEM website
and sign in using your User ID and Password. Return to the home page, and click
the “Submit a Stimulus” button that appears in the navigation listing on the
left side of the screen. You will be asked to agree to all ABEM confidentiality
and work for hire agreements, and to attest to having adhered to all HIPAA
requirements if images contain any identifying patient information. You will
then be asked to complete an online form about the stimulus. After submitting
the form, you will be able to upload your file(s).
All images you submit must meet the following requirements:
- All materials submitted to ABEM for potential
use in ABEM examinations are confidential and, once submitted, their content
may not be disclosed in any way.
- All materials submitted must comply with HIPAA
- None of the materials submitted can have been
previously published, e.g., journal, book, on-line, etc. ABEM strongly prefers
only materials that have not been used for any other purposes, e.g., lectures,
grand rounds, etc.
- All materials submitted are for ABEM’s exclusive
use and may not be used for any purpose in the future.
If you have any questions, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call
517.332.4800 ext. 348.
EMS Practice Pathway
The practice pathway for EMS certification will close in

for EMS certification must have completed an ACGME-accredited EMS fellowship.
