On Oct. 4, we hosted a webinar during ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2020 dedicated to answering many of the questions we’ve received about our initiatives, including:

  • How we’ll examine 2020 and 2021 APPLIED Exam candidates next year
  • Details on our move to virtual APPLIED exams in 2021 as a temporary alternative due to pandemic conditions
  • How the 2020 MOCA 2.0 waiver impacts diplomates whose certifications expire this year
  • How other 2020 policy exceptions during the pandemic will be operationalized
  • Why we’re launching a new mobile app and redesigned portal in 2021

We’ve made the full recording of the webinar available below, which includes answers to questions pre-submitted by registrants.
