The commitment and dedication of nearly 600 Examiners and Exam Development volunteers make it possible for the Board to administer comprehensive, peer-developed assessments and professional development activities.
Examiners for the American Board of Ophthalmology are diplomates selected by the ABO to examine at the oral examination, item writers for both the written and oral examinations and as special committee members in the development of examination materials. Examiners are selected based on a strict ABO evaluation and their strong commitment to providing quality ophthalmic care.
The Board sincerely thanks its Examiners and Item Writing Committees for their commitment and dedication. The ABO is grateful to the many current Examiners who assist in the examination process and who do so without compensation. The costs associated with preparing and administering a national standardized examination are high. For many years, to help offset these costs, the ABO has been the recipient of an extraordinary act of beneficence by hundreds of ophthalmologists throughout the country. Without this voluntary participation, the candidates' expenses would be considerably higher.
