As of July 2012, residents beginning the 4-year continuum of education in anesthesiology are required to take the new staged exams that complement the movement of the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education toward competency-based training and promotion. The American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) BASIC Examination is the first in this series of exams and focuses on the scientific basis of clinical anesthesia practice. It is a summative examination designed to assess the resident’s mastery of the educational objectives for the clinical base and Clinical Anesthesiology (CA-1) years of the continuum of education in anesthesiology. This exam concentrates on content areas such as pharmacology, physiology, anatomy, anesthesia equipment, and monitoring.
