A candidate for subspecialty certification must have achieved initial certification in general pediatrics and continue to maintain current general pediatrics certification in order to take a subspecialty examination. No exceptions to this policy will be granted. The requirements for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) can be found on the ABP website. All candidates are urged to ensure that the requirements for MOC will be met in sufficient time to allow acceptance to the subspecialty certifying examination. Under certain circumstances, individuals registered for the general pediatrics certifying examination may apply for a pediatric subspecialty examination pending notification of the general pediatrics examination results. Before making application, contact the ABP for information.
