The ABNM CertLink™ pilot began in January 2018 and will run for four years. All ABNM diplomates are encouraged to participate. Eligibility criteria and program details are explained in Frequently Asked Questions on the ABNM website. Please visit https://www.abnm.org/index.php/certlink-faqs/ to learn what participation means for you.
ABNM diplomates with time-limited certificates expiring in 2018-2021 who want to participate in CertLink™ had to enroll before June 1, 2018 to waive the MOC examination requirement. Diplomates with time-limited certificates expiring in 2018-2021 who want to participate in CertLink™ may still enroll, but will have to pass the MOC examination before their certificates expire. Diplomates with time-limited certificates expiring in 2022 and 2023 must enroll by November 30, 2018. All other diplomates, including diplomates with lifetime certificates, are encouraged to enroll as soon as possible. The next start date for enrollees is January 1, 2019.
