APPLIED Exam Weeks 2-7 Cancelled, Trainees Will Not Be Adversely Impacted

Updated April 13, 2020 to include the cancellation of Week 7 of the APPLIED Examination.

Given the escalating nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are cancelling Weeks 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the APPLIED Examination. We have also closed APPLIED Exam registration.

Here’s what candidates, residents and fellows need to know:

  • We are putting our
    exam cancellation contingency plan in place and will reach out to candidates as
    soon as we identify new exam dates. This includes the impact this cancellation
    has had on fellows’ ability to take a subspecialty examination.
  • We are waiving all
    exam change and cancellation fees for all virus-related changes and
  • Unfortunately, we
    cannot administer the exam remotely as we cannot ensure the security of a
    remote oral examination and cannot replicate the hands-on nature of the
    Objective Structured Clinical Examination using technology.
  • Residents and fellows
    will not be adversely impacted by ABA requirements during this pandemic.
