When a candidate's application for the Certifying Examination in Dermatology or a subspecialty certification examination is disapproved, the Board retains an administrative fee of $150.00, and will refund the balance to the candidate.

If a candidate withdraws within ten (10) days of the examination or fails to appear for the examination and does not provide verifiable evidence of extenuating circumstances that prevented him or her from appearing for the examination, the Board will retain the entire examination fee. On reapplying, such candidates will be required to again submit the examination fee in effect at the time of the application. Candidates must notify the Board office in writing regarding all withdrawals from examination; a withdrawal will not be accepted by telephone.

Candidates who do not successfully pass the certifying examination in Dermatology, maintenance of certification examination or subspecialty certifying examinations retain the right to apply to retake the examination in subsequent years. For further information concerning Board policy in effect and for the applicable examination fee, candidates are advised to write or call the Board office (313-8743088). Candidates who do not take the certifying examination at the first opportunity after completion of their training are also advised to contact the Board office for clarification of Board policy and the examination fee if they intend to apply to take an examination in any given year.
