Succeed on the IFOM® exams with AMBOSS

Numerous international students have used AMBOSS to elevate their preparations for the International Foundation of Medicine (IFOM®) Basic Science Exam (BSE) and Clinical Science Exam (CSE).

Why AMBOSS is the only resource you need to ace the IFOM® exams

  • Learning material and questions optimised according to the guidelines of the National Board of Medical Examiners® (NBME®), which composes and administers the IFOM® exams.
  • Comprehensive, high-yield Articles for efficient studying and case-based questions that test concepts as they would appear in the actual exam.
  • Advanced learning features (see below) help tailor your preparations to exactly what you need to learn – not what you already know.

AMBOSS helped me organise my study goals, prepare myself and feel calmer about taking the IFOM. Without it, I doubt I’d have performed so well.
