A path to ABA certification for outstanding international anesthesiologists
How this works
The AEP program provides a pathway for outstanding international medical program graduates and certified anesthesiologists to pursue ABA certification. Candidates for the AEP program should demonstrate a record of documented achievement in teaching and/or scholarship rather than the potential for future success.
AEP program participants will spend four years in an academic anesthesiology training program as fellows, researchers or faculty members. Participants are expected to actively participate in departmental educational activities and to otherwise retain or gain basic anesthesiology knowledge and experience that would help them earn ABA certification. Participants approved for the AEP program will take the staged exams for primary certification.
Anesthesiology departments can now have as many as four international medical graduates enrolled in the AEP program at one time (not including sub-specialty AEP participants).

This pathway provides a certification pathway for outstanding internationally trained and certified anesthesiologists who are working as faculty clinicians in the United States.
Research and Fellowship Pathway
The Research & Fellowship Pathway allows internationally trained and certified anesthesiologists to qualify for entrance into our exam system for primary certification in anesthesiology following four years of engaging in departmental educational activities.
