Exam Dates and Fees for Subspecialties

Subspecialty Initial Certification Examinations and Fee Schedules


2020 Spring Examinations

Because of current and likely future travel restrictions, possible personal illness or quarantines, and ongoing Prometric site closures, the ABP is postponing all subspecialty initial certifying examinations that are scheduled in March. We have heard from many that the stress of uncertainty is worse than the disappointment of delaying exams after significant preparation time. If this affects you, there is nothing for you to do at this time. We are working with Prometric to find future new dates and will communicate with you once more information is available.

Registration and exam dates are updated as information becomes available. The deadline to register for ALL exams is 3 p.m. ET by the registration dates noted below.

Regular Registration: $2,900
Late Registration: $3,245 (includes an additional $345 late fee)

Please be aware that it can take up to 48 hours (excluding weekends) to resolve certain technical difficulties. The ABP makes every effort to assist with these issues promptly; however, applicants are responsible for verifying their ability to apply well before the deadline. No exceptions will be allowed for applicants who miss the application deadline.
