American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) are working to co-create a pathway to provide doctors with a flexible way to maintain board certification.
Beginning in 2020, oncologists will be able to take a shorter assessment every two years that will be jointly developed by ABIM and ASCO, reflecting the specialization and expertise of oncologists. The shorter assessment pathway will take the place of ABIM's two-year Knowledge Check-In in Medical Oncology that had been planned for 2020.
Oncologists will not need to have an ASCO membership to take the shorter assessment pathway.
