Emergency Medicine Examination Schedule

The Emergency Medicine written examination is delivered as a computer-based test (CBT) – permitting you to select the test center closest to your work or home location. Typically, the examination is available for four weeks during each administration allowing you to select a convenient date during that time period. Most computer testing centers are open Monday – Friday only.


Submission of an incomplete application may delay the board’s acceptance of your application in time for you to take the exam on the date you desire.

At the end of the application, is a a checklist detailing the items required for attachment in order for your application to be considered complete. Please review the materials you are submitting against this checklist.

If after a period of one year from the submission of your application, all of the application materials are not deemed complete and the application has not been approved by the appropriate board of certification, your application will become invalid, thereby requiring you to submit a new application and fee in order to pursue certification. You must meet the certification requirements, in effect, at the time the second or subsequent application is received by ABPS.
