Pain Medicine (PM) Recertification Examination

The Pain Medicine recertification program has transitioned to MOCA 2.0® for all ABA diplomates with current certificates.

The following information is only provided for physicians from the American Boards of Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry and Neurology, and Radiology who will continue to take the co-sponsored recertification examination.

The PM Recertification Examination is a four-hour computer-based exam that consists of 200 multiple-choice questions, each with a single best answer. All 200 questions must be answered. The exam is designed to evaluate the diplomate’s knowledge and clinical judgment in all areas specific to pain medicine. We administer the exam annually at Pearson VUE testing centers.

The next exam will be administered Sept. 12-26, 2020.
