  • ability to test yourself against your peers, with an individualized score report to identify areas to focus your studies;
  • nine hours (three hours per day) of live topical Q&A sessions with the experts on each day of this meeting: September 16–18, 2020; and
  • the hard copy of Endocrine Board Review 12th Edition (2020), containing all 220 case-based questions with complete answer rationale.

Tips for a Successful EBR

Before getting started, please review these tools and tips.

To View the Interactive On-demand Topical Review Sessions

  • Login with your endocrine.org username and password.
  • The on-demand program requires a currently supported computer or mobile device with a supported web-browser. Your computer or device will need speakers to hear the presentation or you may use headphones.
  • We recommend use of a high-speed internet connection. A wired connection is generally a more reliable connection than a WiFi connection.
  • Answer interactive questions in the media player directly. After you answer every case-based question in a topical session, your prior responses can be cleared for additional practice.
  • View your score report by selecting the graduation cap icon in each media player.

Prepare to Join in Advance of the Live Q&A Sessions

  • You will need to login with your endocrine.org username and password in order to view the live program.
  • Please test and check your system at least 10 minutes prior to the live Q&A sessions. This includes your network connection, device battery life, and speakers.
  • We recommend you use a computer or a tablet for the best experience.
  • A high-speed internet connection is required. A wired connection is generally a more reliable connection than a WiFi connection.
  • Upon successful login, you will join the live program using Zoom webinar. View the requirements from Zoom.
  • If you miss a live session, don't worry. All live sessions will be recorded and available to registrants by Tuesday, September 22.

Control Your Environment as Best You Can

  • Mute other devices that might interfere with your computer audio.
  • Create a learning-conducive environment, eliminating as many distractions as possible. Close out of other tabs and mute notifications, if possible.
  • Prepare your space with anything you may need during the virtual program (appropriate chargers, note-taking materials, water, etc.).
