Exam Administration in 2019

In 2019 we will offer:

The BASIC Exam (for first year Derm residents) on Thursday, April 11, 2019

The Online Practice Exam (for second and third year Derm residents) March 11 - March 29. 


To help residents and programs understand our transition to the new certification pathway, we are preparing an updated infographic to demonstrate the exam administration pathway for residents through 2021. It will be posted to this page and shared via email as soon as it is available.
