Extended Registration Dates for Initial Certification Exam Expand/Collapse the ABIM alert.

ABIM is granting candidates extra time to register for the Subspecialty Initial Certification Exams. The registration period will extend through Thur., 6/21/19. The extension is being provided because our exam vendor, Pearson VUE, had scheduled maintenance on our original registration close date of June 15, 2019.
