The ABDPH continues to assess the COVID-19 situation and its impact on the delivery of its examinations. Currently all testing centers in North America are closed and social distancing restrictions remain in place. Due to the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and out of respect for the declarations of emergency throughout the country, the ABDPH Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to postpone examinations until further notice as we continue to work on contingency plans.

We recognize the significance of these circumstances for the careers of our candidates. Therefore, we will continue to closely monitor current information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization and will reach out to those who were scheduled to take the examination as soon as we have sufficient information to support rescheduling.

The Board will apply all examination fees paid towards alternative testing options, but also will issue refunds upon request. 

We appreciate your patience during this exceptional time as we work through potential solutions to administering the examination.

Please monitor this site and reach out to the Executive Director at [email protected] with questions.
