Candidates who were scheduled for the postponed 2020 exams will be the first assigned to the 2021 administrations.

ABEM is working to confirm logistics for these exams. We will contact physicians who are waiting to be assigned an exam date by May 1, 2021, with additional registration information.

ABEM values the Oral Exam as part of the process to become ABEM certified and has invested in pivoting our delivery to meet physician needs. We recognize the frustration that Emergency Medicine physicians are experiencing due to COVID-19. Please know we are focused on providing all eligible physicians the opportunity to become certified as soon as possible.

The ABEM Board is committed to providing the opportunity to take the Oral Certification Exam in 2021 to all who were affected by the postponed exams in 2020.
