Exception for Resident Quarantine Extended

Oct 29, 2020

For the 2020-2021 academic year, the American Board of Emergency Medicine has temporarily reduced minimum training requirements required to be ABEM board eligible to accommodate any two-week period of quarantine without negatively affecting a resident’s board eligibility status. This temporary accommodation reduces this year’s minimum of successfully completed training time from 46 to 44 weeks. This temporary allowance for quarantine should be adequate for most quarantine situations without extending training. ABEM strongly supports nontraditional learning approaches during periods of quarantine. In cases that are not covered by the revised policy, please have your program director contact ABEM.

This allowance for a two-week quarantine period is in addition to ABEM’s recently approved Policy on Parental, Caregiver, and Medical Leave.

If you have any questions, please email training@abem.org, or call 517.332.4800 option 3.
