ABPN Extends Board Eligibility Policy and Virtual Clinical Skills Evaluations Through June 30, 2022
Due to ongoing issues with in-person clinical experiences at residency training programs, the ABPN has decided to extend its current board eligibility policy through June 30, 2022. Program Directors can be assured that the Board will continue to follow their lead with respect to whether or not a particular resident has completed the specific training needed for graduation. The ABPN will continue to be flexible with respect to senior residents as long as the Program Director agrees.
In addition, through June 30, 2022, the ABPN will continue to accept virtual CSEs completed via a remote conferencing platform such as Zoom for all psychiatry and neurology residents as part of the credentialing requirements to sit for an ABPN initial certification exam.
Programs can enter resident information, including CSEs, into the ABPN preCERT® Credentialing System. We ask that Program Directors please use the preCERT notes section to designate virtual CSEs.
See the original board eligibility and virtual clinical skills evaluations announcements for more information. If you have additional questions, please contact our credentials department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
