Common questions about the ABSITE


You cannot take the ABSITE as an individual. You must find a residency program that is willing to allow you to take the exam with its residents. The program would be responsible for payment to the ABS for your participation — you cannot make payment to us yourself. Your exam results would be included in the program's results and would be reported only to the program director.
The ABS does not release ABSITE results to individual residents. You will need to contact your residency program director to obtain your past examination results.
Your program director can help with the interpretation of results. The specific areas of weakness are identified in the summary results that you receive. The ABS does not discuss results with residents.
Please refer to the Dates & Fees page. See also our ABSITE page for the date and additional information.
