Note: Individuals who completed a Podiatric Surgical Residency (PSR) that did not also include a Podiatric Orthopedics Residency (POR) or a Primary Podiatric Medicine Residency (PPMR) are not eligible to sit for the ABPM examinations. For further information on this issue, please click here.
2018 marks the last year in which applicants with 2-years of CPME-approved residency training will be able to apply for the ABPM Examination process. Candidates without any status and without cases on file must pass case review and part 1 in 2018 to continue to part 2 of the certification process in 2018. Candidates who attempt both parts 1 and part 2 in 2018 and who pass part 1 only have the ability to attempt certification through 2020. No extensions will be granted thereafter.
Beginning in 2019 all applicants must have 3 years of approved residency training to be eligible to sit for the examinations.
