The following is the 2016 tiered pricing schedule for the Family Medicine Obstetrics application and computer-based (written) examination fees for initial certification.
Application Dates and Fees

|Complete Application & Payment
|October 15, 2015||$500*|
|October 16 – December 1, 2015||$750|
*All applications must be complete at the time of submission. This includes ALL supporting documentation as specified on the Application Checklist found on the last page of the application packet. Applicants who submit incomplete applications are NOT eligible for any early deadline or special pricing discounts. Payment for these applications will be processed at the regular application rate of $750. The Board will not schedule or review incomplete applications, therefore, submission of an incomplete application may delay the Board’s Credentialing review of your application and consequently may preclude you from taking the exam in your desired administration window.
Written Examination Dates and Fees
Registration paperwork will be mailed to approved candidates in February for the May 2016 examination. As with the application fee, pricing for the written examination fee varies depending upon the postmarked date of the registration.
IMPORTANT! Candidates for Written and Oral examinations are responsible for arranging and direct remittance of all related travel and hotel accommodations and expenses. ABPS will not be held responsible for expenses incurred beyond the cost of the exam, including but not limited to travel expenses and lost wages on the day of the exam.
