2023 Certifying Exam

If the candidate’s application is accepted, a notice of acceptance will be emailed to the candidate in September 2022. The email will explain the process of submitting the thesis and case lists. The examination fee must be paid on or before September 30, 2022. If the candidate must withdraw from the examination due to a medical or other documented emergency, a portion of the examination fee may be refunded. The candidate may request to have the fees applied towards the Certifying Examination the following year. If there is a change in the fee, the candidate will be responsible for the difference.

Candidates will receive their assigned date and session 4-6 weeks prior to the administration of the Subspecialty Exams.
