The American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) will administer the certifying examination in pediatric emergency medicine on April 9, 2013.
Physicians certified in emergency medicine by ABEM must submit an application to ABEM. Physicians certified in general pediatrics by ABP must submit an application to ABP. Physicians who are certified by both boards may apply through either. Upon successful completion of the examination, certification is awarded by the board through which the physician applied.
Applicants must complete an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)–accredited fellowship program in pediatric emergency medicine to be eligible to take the examination in 2013. The complete eligibility criteria are available from each board office or at www.abem.org and www.abp.org.
Application materials are now available for physicians applying through ABEM. Completed applications must be submitted to ABEM on or before Jan. 10, 2013. ABP diplomates should contact ABP for application information.
