 MyEMCert FAQs


Passing the ConCert Examination early does not, by itself, renew your certificate. ABEM-certified physicians are not required to meet other continuing certification requirements to take the ConCert Examination. However, certification can only be renewed if all continuing certification requirements are met.

Take the ConCert™ Exam Early

You can take the ConCert™ Examination, during the testing window, in any of the last five years of your certification. If you pass the exam early, you will still retain your certification until the expiration date on your current certificate. If you take the exam early and do not pass, you still retain your certification and additional opportunities to pass it.
