139 ABIM Doctors Sanctioned for Sharing Exam Questions

The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has sanctioned 139 physicians accused of collecting and sharing board certification exam questions through the New Jersey-based Arora Board Review exam prep service.

ABIM has also settled its lawsuit with doctors Rajender Arora, M.D., and Anise Kachadourian, M.D., barring them from sitting for the ABIM for several years, and barring employees and representatives of the Arora Board Review from accessing, copying, or distributing ABIM materials.

Names of the 139 doctors who were sanctioned in connection with the incident have not been released. However, their status has been updated in the ABIM's online database.
