Re-entry To Certification

Individuals who are no longer eligible to take the Oral Examination because the time limits for taking it have expired or because they have failed the Oral Examination three or more times are eligible to re-take the Primary Examination for credit toward certification.

However, such individuals may not – even after re-passing the Primary Examination hold themselves out to patients, hospitals, other health facilities, employers, medical societies, associations, payors, or the public as “Board Eligible,” “tracking toward certification,” “in the certification process” or words to that effect.  Having once exited the process, such individuals are no longer considered to be in the certification process until and unless they successfully complete all requirements for certification and are actually awarded their Certificate.

Thank you for contacting us. Someone will respond to you shortly during our regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm ET.
