The ABR administers exams for each of its specialties and subspecialties. Exams are administered remotely; for more information, please click here.
The following table includes the 2022 exam schedule. Please note that a one-day oral exam administration has been added. While this additional date is intended for candidates who must miss the main exam administration, or those who conditioned or failed a prior attempt, anyone who is eligible to sit for an oral exam may choose the one-day exam.
The one-day oral exam administration will have limited registration availability. Candidates are strongly encouraged to take the main oral exam administration unless they have an unavoidable life event.
