2016 Integrative Medicine Application & Exam Fee Schedule
The following is the 2017 tiered pricing schedule for the Integrative Medicine application and examination fees for initial certification.
Application Dates and Fees
|Application Fee Schedule for Exam In May 2017|
|Complete Application & Payment
|October 15, 2016||$500*|
|October 16 – December 1, 2016||$750|
*All applications must be complete at the time of submission. This includes ALL supporting documentation as specified on the 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.
Examination Dates and Fees
Registration paperwork will be mailed to approved candidates in February for the May 2017 examination. As with the application fee, pricing for the written examination fee varies depending upon the postmarked date of the registration.
IMPORTANT! Candidates for ABPS 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.
|May 2017 Exam Fee Schedule|
|Registration Forms & Payment
|March 8, 2017||$1099|
|After March 8, 2017||$1950|
*Candidates are permitted to take each of the written examinations as many as three times in order to pass. For initial certification, candidates are required to pay the full exam fee for each exam attempt.
Certification Management Fee (CMF)
Once certified, all ABPS Diplomates are required to remit the Certification Management Fee (CMF). The CMF is an annual fee that supports the management and governance of the ABPS certification and recertification programs. The fee also supports day-to-day operations of each specialty board, including maintenance of certification standards, board administration, advocacy and brand awareness. Additionally, the CMF defrays the cost to advise and attest to a physician’s board certification status with hospitals and managed care organizations.
