Important Update Regarding 2020 Specialty Certifying Exam

April 9, 2020 - Candidates are facing new challenges and managing competing professional and personal priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to work with candidates whose goal is still to take the 2020 Specialty Certification Examination (CE) this fall. To assist in meeting your goal, ABOG has modified the CE deadlines, fees, and case list requirements. Key modifications include:


  • Extending the application deadline from May 22 to June 22, 2020.
  • Eliminating all late fees associated with the application and case list submission process.
  • Reducing the required case volume for the 2020 case collection year.
  • Extending the case list submission deadline from August 17, 2020 to August 31, 2020.


The 2020 Specialty Certifying Bulletin has been updated to reflect these changes, and you can also find more details regarding these 2020 CE modifications in our 2020 Specialty Certifying Examination FAQs.


If you decide not to take the 2020 CE this cycle, please contact us to help you reschedule for next year or plan for a future year.   


We know you are extremely busy helping to manage the COVID-19 health crisis, and we want to partner with you and assist you to become certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Please contact us at exams@abog.org with any questions regarding the 2020 CE or other certification issues.
