Updated EMS Certification News
ABEM has opened additional dates for the EMS Certification examination, on March 20, 21, and 22, 2014.
If you did not take the examination in October 2013 but you have an approved EMS certification application on file with ABEM, you may take the examination in March. This includes:
- Physicians who scheduled an appointment for October 2013 and then canceled it instead of taking the examination
- Physicians who registered for the October examination but did not schedule an appointment to take it
- Physicians whose applications were approved but who did not register for the examination
- Physicians who applied for certification by the June 30, 2013, deadline, and whose applications are approved between now and the registration deadline for the March examination dates
Physicians who took the examination in October and physicians who did not apply for certification by the 2013 deadline may not take the examination in March 2014.
In early November, ABEM will contact all physicians who are eligible to take the examination in March in order to move their registration to the March dates, or to assist them register if they did not do so prior to the October examination dates. Registration will remain open through January 31, 2014. However, ABEM will work closely with each physician to help ensure that they register and schedule their examination appointment early enough to ensure an appointment within a reasonable distance.
