2017 Testing Schedule Set for ABPS Member Certification Boards

2017 Examination ScheduleAt the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), one of the central components of our board certification process is that each of our applicants must successfully pass a written examination. Our standardized, psychometrically validated examinations test core concepts of a specialty area and measure the subject matter mastery of the physician candidate. Available at testing centers located throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada, these examinations are a convenient option for physicians who are looking to certify or re-certify through one of our Member Boards.

Each examination is offered at several times and locations during a month-long window at the various testing locations. To view the upcoming application and examination schedule for each specialty area in 2017, click here.

Successful completion of the written examination is contingent on your continued candidacy for board certification. In many specialty areas, a subsequent oral examination is also required. These oral exams are offered yearly in Tampa, Florida. The projected oral examination dates can be found here. Please be advised that the ABPS is not responsible for providing lodging, travel expenses, or compensating for any lost wages.
