97% of Neuropathology Board Examinees Pass on First Try


This chart released by the American Board of Pathology reveals that neuropathology (NP) fellows taking their subspecialty board examination should not be too worried about passing. In 2015, 28 out of 29 first-time takers passed. That's a lot better than those taking the statistically hardest board exam, blood banking/transfusion medicine (BB/TM), which had a 85% first-time pass rate.

The next neuropathology board examination is September 14, 2016.

Both the pass rate and the number of people taking each sub-specialty board is of interest to me. It looks like they need to challenge the medical microbiology folks a little more.
