The ABA's Physician's Portal, RTID and the physician's certification verification tool will be offline for at least two weeks for a system migration starting at midnight on Friday, Aug. 15. During this time, users will not be able to update records, register for exams or otherwise use these systems. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the ABA Communications Center at 866-999-7501 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday. Thank you for your patience.

The American Board of Anesthesiology examines and certifies physicians who complete an accredited program of anesthesiology training in the United States and voluntarily apply to the Board for certification or maintenance of certification. The ABA also offers subspecialty certification in Critical Care Medicine, Pain Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Care Medicine, Sleep Medicine and Pediatric Anesthesiology. For more information on ABA certifications, please visit the Examinations and Certifications page.


Physicians can access their ABA Portal Account to update their contact information, apply for certification or review MOCA requirements.
