Important COVID RELATED information below:
- The fall 2020 administration of the ABNS oral examination is currently scheduled for October 31-November 1 at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. We understand that both examiners and candidates may be concerned about how developments with the coronavirus may affect the examination. Please note that we are monitoring the situation closely and will make a final decision no later than August 1, 2020 as to whether to hold the examination as scheduled or make alternative arrangements. The decision will be based on whether public health officials and the ABNS conclude that the examination and associated travel can be undertaken with minimal risk. Everyone who is scheduled to take the examination or be an examiner will be notified promptly of that decision, but for the moment everyone should assume that the exam will be administered as scheduled.
