Faced with the limitations of paper-based assessment, the Arab Board of Health Specializations (ABHS) began searching for a more sustainable exam solution. The ABHS selected ExamSoft’s digital assessment platform in early 2020 and has since realized benefits such as increased efficiency and global reach, as well as data-driven insights to drive continuous improvement.
The Arab Board of Health Specializations (ABHS) is a scientific and professional body founded by the Council of Arab Health Ministers in 1978. The ABHS grants certificates of specialization to doctors from Arab countries through training programs and specialization exams.
The ABHS general secretariat is located in Damascus, Syria, and its headquarters is based in Amman, Jordan. The ABHS offers training and certification in over 50 specialties and subspecialties and administers specialization exams in 17 testing centers throughout countries in the Arab League. The ABHS delivers 80 to 90 computer-based examinations annually.
As of 2021, the ABHS has granted certificates of specialization to over 23,000 graduates in Arab countries.
