Duration of Candidate Status Policy

Candidates whose subspecialty recertification expires on or before Dec. 31, 2016 will have until Dec. 31, 2018 to satisfy all requirements for subspecialty recertification. Candidates have one examination appointment per calendar year until Dec. 31, 2018 to successfully complete the requirements for subspecialty recertification.

If candidates do not satisfy all recertification requirements within the prescribed time period, we will declare their registration void, and they will be required to reestablish eligibility for subspecialty certification. See the Subspecialty Certification BOI for more information.
