Certifying (Part 2) Exam Announcement

Certifying (Part 2) Exam Announcement

During these times of continued uncertainty, the American Board of Urology (ABU) has been working prudently and diligently to adapt our Certifying (Part 2) Oral Examination to meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our primary focus remains on protecting the health and safety of our Certifying (Part 2) candidates, Diplomates, board personnel, and examiners.  Therefore, in consideration of those factors, the ABU has carefully decided to move forward with a virtual administration of our Certifying (Part 2) Oral Examination in the spring of 2021.  Our goal is to deliver a safe and equitable examination experience while maintaining the integrity of the exam. 

The 2021 Certifying (Part 2) Oral Examination will be delivered virtually on Friday, May 21 and Saturday, May 22.  We acknowledge that, while this solution is not optimal, we will do our utmost to provide a valid and reliable exam experience for our candidates and our examiners.  Each candidate will be assigned one exam date and participate in a morning exam session and an afternoon exam session.  Time zones will be taken into consideration and accommodated as possible.  Due to the complexity of this process, candidates will not be able to select their exam appointments. 

On behalf of all of us at the ABU, we thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. We hope that you, your families, and your colleagues remain safe and healthy.  We are steadfast in our commitment to assist you as we navigate these challenging times and encourage those needing assistance to contact the ABU office.  Please expect to receive instructions and technical guidance in the coming weeks.
