Experience Elite ABSITE Tutoring

The importance of performing well on the ABSITE cannot be understated. Not only does the ABSITE have a major impact on resident promotion, but in many general surgery programs, failure to score within the 50th percentile or better on the ABSITE warrants academic probation and/ or required remediation. In order to avoid such extreme measures, working with a specialized ABSITE tutor is an excellent way to get ahead before taking your ABISTE exam.

What is the ABSITE?

The ABS In-Training Exam (ABSITE) is offered every year by The American Board of Surgery to current residents of general surgery and is designed to measure the progress attained by residents in their knowledge of applied science and management of clinical problems related to surgery.

How is the ABSITE scored?

From the 250 questions on the ABISTE, an absolute percentage score and a percentile score are recorded. ABSITE test results are released directly to program directors and examinees are not allowed a copy.

How is the ABSITE administered?

The ABSITE consists of approximately 250 multiple-choice questions. Examinees have 5 hours to take the exam without any scheduled breaks, and the exam is administered online using each program’s own computer facilities.
