  • Submit a Confidential Tip

    At the ABPMR, exam security is at the core of our mission.

    ABPMR exams measure all candidates by the same standard, so no one candidate should have an unfair advantage. There are serious repercussions for cheating, and we take it very seriously.

    If you observe any unethical behavior (including cheating) before, during, or after and exam, please submit a confidential tip.

  • For Credentialers

    Our free physician verification tool is the best way to get up-to-date physician credentials on all of our diplomates, including certification date and expiration for primary and subspecialty certification, as well whether the physician is meeting Continuing Certification (CC) requirements.

    Verbal Verification of Certification Status

    Requests for verbal verification of a physician's status can be made by contacting the ABPMR or the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) at 1-866-ASK-ABMS (275-2267). Requests must include the physician's social security number or date of birth for identification purposes.

    Written Verification of Certification Status

    Requests for written verification of a physician's status must be submitted in writing to the ABPMR, accompanied by a $35 processing fee for each physician and verification letter requested. Requests must include the physician's social security number or date of birth for identification purposes.

    Payment may be made with a personal check or money order. The ABPMR does not accept credit cards. There is a $20 charge for bank-returned checks. All verification letters are sent by first-class mail.
