CORD is working with ABEM and Maestro to create a platform and the cases that can be used for the Mock eOral Boards. To gain access to the cases available you will need to read and sign the CORD eOral Software Agreement. Also, please read the CORD Residency LOA FAQs. It is very important that you read the FAQs prior to signing the agreement as they will explain the arrangements between ABEM, Maestro and CORD and should answer most questions.

Please complete and return the signed Letters of Agreement to the CORD Business Office. If you have any questions please contact the CORD office at
