Initial Application and Fees
Last verified on August 13, 2018
After a candidate enters residency, his or her program director or coordinator will submit the candidate’s name and email address to the ABR as a new resident in the training program.
When your information is received, the ABR will send you a notification and information for logging in to myABR
to begin the application process.
If you have not already applied:
- Applications are accepted by the ABR July 1 - October 31 (the first annual fee is due at the time of registration).
- Applications are reviewed by the ABR in the order they are received.
Annual fees are charged for every year you are in the initial certification process, beginning with your first year of residency. If you do not fully pass the Core or Certifying exam on the first administration, additional exam fees will apply. Please note that all fees are subject to change.
Fees must be paid within myABR
Please note that the annual fee is not refundable. If you pay your fees after PGY2, you will owe fees for multiple years.

Fees After the Standard Five-year Billing Schedule
All candidates out of training are charged an annual fee to continue participating in the certification process. Assuming no outstanding fees are owed, one initial certifying exam may be attempted every year at no additional charge. If a second initial certification exam is taken in the same calendar year, a re-exam fee will be charged. Individuals may continue to participate in the certification process until their board eligibility period terminates. All candidates will be invoiced annually until certification is obtained or until board eligibility expires, whichever occurs first.
