Bring the power of PEER assessments to your residency training program with PEER IX for Residency Programs!

Now Available!

When you sign up your program and buy annual memberships for your residents and faculty, you get —at no extra charge— a dashboard that allows you to create and assign tests from all PEER content then monitor performance.

Here’s how it works

When you sign up your program, we create an account for you, and you tell us how many seats you want. That account entitles you to two free “seats” for Administrators – those are the people who assign the rest of the seats. If you want APDs and faculty to be part of the account, you just assign them seats. But you also assign them “roles” – as Faculty (the name of the role in our system), they can create tests and monitor performance and run reports. The best part is that, for this first year, programs can buy seats for APDs and faculty at the same rate as the residents! That’s a HUGE discount.

What To Expect From PEER Questions

All PEER questions are written as close to "board style" as possible. Each one includes a detailed explanation of why the correct answer is correct, and why the "foils" are wrong.

Right now, we have 446 brand-new PEER IX questions—we're adding new ones each month. You also will have access to the remaining PEER VIII questions (about 350) while we update and add them to PEER IV.


Do you and your faculty have a trauma CME requirement? Or stroke? Are you getting ready for your own certification exam? Use PEER IX! Everyone enrolled in the program’s PEER IX account will have his or her own PEER IX membership. Use it to create your own tests for study and practice. Or create trauma and stroke tests to help satisfy your hospital requirements!

Find out why your peers say PEER is “closest to the boards”
… it was eerie how many exact questions were on the test that I had seen on PEER VIII and PEER IX. I was skeptical. With the limited number of questions in the PEER bank when compared to the other competitors, I doubted that it would even be a worthwhile resource, but I was wrong. Very high yield questions and foils.

Since 1974
The “beta test” for the first EM board exam.

Experience matters
Published continually for 42 years. That’s how you get “closest to the boards.”


100% new content
All PEER IX questions and answer explanations are brand new.

It's what you expect from board prep, and more
All 20 categories of the EM Model, “weighted” as they'll be on your board exam, plus “acuity” frames, peds, and geriatrics. New: “Physician Tasks.”

Not just board-“style” questions
Board-compliant questions. Will you see “all of the following except?” No. Because who thinks the right answer should be the wrong action? ABEM doesn’t. And neither do we.
