Maintaining Medical Toxicology Certification

Emergency Medicine (EM) physicians certified in Medical Toxicology are not required to maintain their EM certification, but must meet all requirements of the Medical Toxicology continuing certification process to maintain valid certification. This includes passing the Medical Toxicology Cognitive Expertise Examination. Physicians whose Medical Toxicology certification is through a different ABMS Member Board should contact their home board for details on maintaining certification.

Personal Page

Physicians certified in Medical Toxicology have an ABEM Personal Page, a secure portal used to perform tasks related to the Medical Toxicology continuing certification process.

Sign in to your ABEM Personal Page

Sign in to:

  • Learn your requirements and status, and review completed activities and LLSA test results
  • Provide medical licensure information
  • Review LLSA readings, as well as register for and take required LLSA tests
  • Register for the Medical Toxicology Cognitive Expertise Examination, optional CME credit
  • Attest to completion of IMP Practice Improvement activities

To renew certification, clinically active physicians must meet all ABEM Medical Toxicology continuing certification requirements. Clinically inactive physicians must meet all ABEM Medical Toxicology continuing certification requirements except IMP.

Requirements of the Medical Toxicology continuing certification process are being phased in, so individual requirements may vary.

MedTox Requirements by Certification End Date

Medical Toxicology-certified physicians must meet one or more Medical Toxicology continuing certification requirements before reaching their five-year deadline. To regain status, they must make up missed requirements before the end of their ten-year certification period.

Regaining Certification

Medical Toxicology-certified physicians who lose their certification will have the opportunity to get it back. Please contact ABEM at 517-332-4800, ext. 387, or subspecialties@abem.org for more information.
