June General Surgery Certifying Exam Cancelled

Apr. 22, 2020 Media Contact: Alyson Maloney , 215-568-4000

For the safety of our candidates, our examiners, our staff, and the public, the General Surgery Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the June administration of the General Surgery Certifying Examination.

Board eligibility will be extended for this candidate group, and this will not count as a missed exam opportunity. Disrupted candidates will be given advance priority to schedule for next year's exams prior to general scheduling, and will be notified of exam dates when they are available.

Exam fees will be applied to rescheduled exams. If you do not intend to reschedule in the 2020-2021 exam year, please contact the ABS office to arrange for a refund of your fees. This will also remove you from the advance priority scheduling list.

Please contact the ABS office with any additional questions or concerns at this time.
