Each year, ABOMS normally collects Annual Registration from October through December for the following year. Beginning with 2021 Annual Registration (AR), ABOMS will be changing its timeline. Online forms for the 2021 AR will begin in January of 2021 and remain open through March. This means you will not be receiving Annual Registration notices, as you normally would, in the fall. More information will be sent later this year.
ABOMS now offers two Certificates of Added Qualifications (CAQ). ABOMS will be administering two CAQ examinations at the 2020 AAOMS Annual Meeting in San Antonio. The two CAQs ABOMS offers are:
Applications are now open on Diplomate profiles through June 1. Visit our CAQ webpage for more information.
This is the first year of the new ABOMS Certification Maintenance (CM) Program. The Board of Directors eliminated its high stakes examination and replaced it with an interactive process that can be completed at the convenience of your own computer. If you have not yet completed your CM requirements, you still have until the end of the year to do so. Visit your Diplomate profile to view and complete your requirements. More information can be found on our CM page.
Applications for the 2021 Qualifying Examination will open on the ABOMS website beginning in June. The Board recently approved a pathway for residents in their senior year of residency to begin the Certification process. More information regarding the process will be given in the next few weeks.
Applications for the 2021 Oral Certifying Examination will open on the ABOMS website in the beginning of June. The administration week for the 2021 OCE will be different than previous years. The 2021 OCE will be administered during the final week of February, February 22-26, 2021.
