The ABP recently approved a revision to its policy for Time-Limited Eligibility for Initial Certification Examinations. The intent of this policy is to assure that applicants for certification possess current competence in pediatrics or a pediatric subspecialty. For those who have lost eligibility to take an examination, the ABP will require an independent assessment of the individual’s competence to practice without supervision. The goal is not to fully retrain an individual or to prepare an applicant to take a certifying examination.
The revised policy and its accompanying documents, Plan for Supervised Practice and Assessment of Competence in General Pediatrics in the Accredited Training Program and Plan for Supervised Practice and Assessment of Competence in a Subspecialty in the Accredited Training Program, may be found here.
