Diplomates with time-limited certificates may apply to take the recertification examination any year in which it is offered.  However, for formal (official) completion of the Recertification Process, candidates must take either of the 3 recertification examinations that immediately precede the expiration of their time-limited certificate.  In other words, a diplomate will only be granted a new ten-year certificate after passing the recertification examination in year 8, 9, or 10 of his/her ten-year cycle. 

Diplomates with lifetime certification may elect to pursue voluntary recertification in any year the examination is offered.  We are beginning to see the first practical steps taken by insurers to link reimbursement to participation in maintenance of certification (MOC) programs. Additionally, the Federation of State Medical Boards is preliminarily considering linking licensure to participation in MOC. Any questions or correspondence relating to the recertification process or maintenance of certification process should be directed to the Executive Director of the American Board of Dermatology.


Diplomates who require a proctored recertification examination prior to 2010 to satisfy state medical licensure requirements, may elect to take a shortened version of the certifying examination of the Board administered annually in August.  Contact the Board office for further details.
