Combined Training Programs

The ABA collaborates with other medical specialty certifying boards to provide combined training programs that enable physicians to fulfill the training requirements for certification in both specialties by completing five, rather than six, years of training. Graduates may then qualify for board certification in both specialties after satisfactorily completing one of the five-year combined training programs.
