2022 Certification for the American Board of Physician Specialties
Physicians who are interested in board certification or recertification with the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) should know that ABPS has released its 2022 examination schedule. To earn board certification with the ABPS, candidates must pass a psychometrically validated written exam that tests core concepts of a specialty and measures how candidates have mastered the subject matter.
Exams will be offered at a network of testing centers throughout the United States and Canada during three-week-long testing windows in May, August, or October of 2022, depending on the specialty.
Candidates for initial certification in those specialties must pass the written exam before they are permitted to take the oral component, which is offered once a year. However, not all specialties require an oral exam.
To be eligible for an ABPS board certification or re-certification exam, candidates must apply before the published deadline. To view the application and exam schedule for each specialty in 2022, as well as a list of specialties that require an oral exam, click here.
Physicians currently board certified through the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) or the American Orthopedic Association (AOA) are eligible to recertify through the ABPS.
