Public Comment on Complex General Surgical Oncology Test Blueprint through November 4

Oct. 19, 2022 Media Contact: Alyson Maloney, 215-568-4000

The Complex General Surgical Oncology Board (CGSOB) of the American Board of Surgery (ABS) recently undertook efforts to review and revise the test blueprint for all CGSO exams, including the CGSO Qualifying Exam (QE), the CGSO Certifying Exam (CE), and the CGSO Continuous Certification Assessment (CCA). Test blueprints are documents that define the content to be tested on an exam, and it is important to periodically review and revise these documents so that they accurately reflect current practice and training.

To ensure that the test blueprint aligns with the knowledge and skills required of practicing CGSO surgeons, we invite you to review and provide feedback on the draft document. If you would like to comment on this document, please follow the steps below. Your feedback will be used to inform further revisions to the blueprint.
