All candidates will need to complete and submit an online application in ABPN Physician Folios in order to qualify and apply for an examination. Each application will be reviewed by the credentials department. Candidates become diplomates after passing their examination. Diplomates will then begin the process of maintenance of certification. Review the ABPN Initial Certification Exam Process Flyer for more information.
Examinations are administered at Pearson VUE test centers across the United States and Canada. Testing outside the United States and Canada is available in some locations. Please contact the ABPN at email@example.com for more information.
Candidates will have the opportunity to select their own test date, time and location based on the availability with Pearson. See our Exam Schedule to learn the exam dates and application deadlines.
