CORE Exam Dermpath Module - Sample Virtual DP Items

A portion of the items (~30) within the Dermatopathology module on the ABD's CORE Exam use a virtual dermatopathology (VDP) viewer. To allow residents to practice with the VDP viewer prior to the exam, the ABD has published a set of 5 sample items. 

For best results, and to simulate the exam day experience, access this exercise from a computer using the CHROME or FIREFOX browser. It is not recommended that residents use a mobile phone or tablet to practice since the exam will not be administered on those devices. 

Disclaimer: The five items contained in this exercise are not intended to represent the content included on the exam or the expected level of difficulty of the questions.
