Internal Medicine / Emergency Medicine Policy Overview

The American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Emergency Medicine offer dual certification for candidates who have completed at least two and a half years of suitable accredited training in each specialty. A combined residency consists of five years of balanced education in the two disciplines. It is strongly recommended that the participating residencies be in the same academic health center.

To be eligible for dual certification, the resident must satisfactorily complete 60 months of combined education, which must be verified by the directors of both programs. The certifying examinations cannot be taken until all five years are completed.
