Testing Locations

The Maintenance of Certification (MOC) general pediatrics examination and most of the subspecialty exams are administered at Prometric Testing Centers.

Examinations administered at Pearson Vue Testing Centers are Hospice and Palliative Medicine, Medical Toxicology, Neurodevelopmental Disabilities, Sleep Medicine, and Pediatric Transplant Hepatology. Although these exams are administered by other boards, you still apply for them in your ABP Portfolio if you are an ABP board-certified pediatrician.

Reminder: Apply early to take the exam in the city of your choice!
