The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) in collaboration with the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) has established a procedure for certification in adolescent medicine. To be eligible for this subspecialty examination, a physician must be certified in either pediatrics by the ABP, internal medicine by the ABIM, or family practice by the ABFM. This document provides the requirements of the ABP. In addition to the specific admission requirements listed below, General Eligibility Criteria for all ABP Subspecialties must be fulfilled to be eligible for certification. (Note: A candidate who has a primary certificate from ABIM or ABFM should contact that board regarding its eligibility criteria.) Examination registration dates may differ for each board.
