PM&R Re-Entry Examination and the CC Cycle
Eligibility to Take the PM&R Re-Entry Examination
The ABPMR Board of Directors believes that Longitudinal Assessment for LA-PM&R (LA-PM&R) provides the best, evidence-based, and formative method for assessing knowledge and promoting learning for all diplomates. The PM&R Re-Entry Examination is intended not as an alternative to LA-PM&R, but rather as a mechanism for getting you back on track if your performance or participation has fallen off track for LA-PM&R, or if your certification is currently expired and you’d like to regain it now.
You are eligible to apply for the PM&R Re-Entry Examination if:
- Your primary certification is currently expired
- You have received notice from the ABPMR that you will not meet the LA-PM&R performance standard, typically at the end of year 3 or 4 of your current five-year cycle. This can be due to low performance or non-participation.
The examination is offered once per year in late summer/early fall. Passing the examination counts for your five-year continuing certification assessment requirement. If you pass by the fifth year of your current cycle and complete all other CC requirements, your certification will be valid for another five-year cycle.
