SOME IM CERTIFICATION EXAM APPOINTMENTS CANCELED Expand/Collapse the ABIM alert.

With capacity reduced at all Pearson VUE test centers to maintain safety, some appointments (less than 20%) to take the Internal Medicine Certification Examination have been canceled and must be rescheduled. If this applies to you, you should have received this email, which clarifies what your next steps are.

More than 68% of affected candidates have already rescheduled. So, be sure to reschedule soon if you haven’t done so already.

Credit from Other ABMS Boards

ABIM works closely with other certifying Boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) to streamline the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process for Board Certified physicians.

If you are an ABIM diplomate who is dual-boarded by one or more of the other ABMS Member Boards, your self-evaluation requirements can be waived.

If you are eligible to receive this reciprocal credit, you will see a feature in your Physician Portal. Click on this feature to attest that you are currently certified by and participating in the other Board's MOC program.

You will still need to meet the other ABIM MOC requirements: maintaining a valid, unrestricted and unchallenged medical license, passing a secure ABIM MOC assessment, and meeting any other ABIM-specific subspecialty procedural requirements.
