Will CoVID-19 Affect IDBR?

IDBR will be held as scheduled, although registrants and faculty affected by CoVID-19 will have the option of participating by videocast (live or archived) if events require this.


IDBR is committed to the health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and staff. We are actively monitoring the rapidly evolving developments related to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the potential impact it may have on the course. 


Based on information currently available, we are planning to hold the course as scheduled and have no plans to postpone or cancel the conference. Registration is open and ongoing. 


We understand some of our attendees will be impacted and are actively planning alternative learning scenarios (online access) should they be needed. Faculty and registrants will have the option of livecast and same day posting on line of all sessions: thus faculty will be speaking as scheduled, either live in Tysons Corner or by videocast from home. Similary, registrants will be able to follow the course on line from home.


We remain hopeful that the virus will be contained on a global scale as soon as possible. For further questions or concerns, contact the CEHP Office at 202-994-4285 or cehp@gwu.edu.

How to Prepare for Certification and Re-Certification Exams



IDBR is the "Gold Standard" for preparing physicians to pass the certification or re-certification examination for the Infectious Disease Subspecialty of the American Board of Internal Medicine. Each year, more than 400 attendees join our renowned faculty of nationally recognized subject matter experts for four and a half days of lectures and interactive questions focused on preparation for the examination. An audience response system helps attendees compare their performance on 40-50 test questions daily, anonymously, to the performance of their colleagues. In addition to those who attend the live course, over 600 additional learners take the course "at home," with access to all the online material and archived lectures. The IDBR has been a preferred course for thousands of infectious disease specialists.


I would make this course a requirement for all graduating fellows and a refresher for all ID attendings!

A tremendous experience and worth every penny!

It was a rare privilege to learn from the GIANTS in the field.
