Recertification Exam Info and Format Notes

Each MOC examination (primary and subspecialty) is composed of 150 multiple‑choice questions in the single best answer format. You will have 3.5 hours to answer these questions and complete your exam.

The primary examinations (AP/CP, AP only, and CP only) are modular and diplomates can select modules at the time of the examination that are as relevant as possible to their individual scope of practice. You can find a list of the modules on the ABPATH web site.

Diplomates who hold both a primary and a subspecialty certification have the option to sit for a single examination that includes a 50-question primary certification module (AP and/or CP) and the 150-question subspecialty examination. The combined primary and subspecialty exam will last 4.5 hours and is graded together as a single 200-question exam for purposes of pass/fail. A passing score will fulfill the Part III requirement for both certifications for the MOC 10-year cycle.

Available MOC Subspecialties:

  • Hemepath
  • Molecular Genetic Pathology
  • Neuropathology
  • Pediatric Pathology

The pass rate for the recertification exam is historically fairly high. MOC exams may be taken in Tampa, or via remote access. If the test taker opts into remote access, the test must still be administered within the two week time period.

Each exam module may include the following:

  • Federal Regulations Relevant to Anatomic and/or Clinical Pathology
  • CLIA Regulations
  • AABB Standards for Transfusion Medicine
  • Principles of Laboratory Management
  • Coding and Billing
  • Quality Assurance
  • Laboratory Accreditation
  • Patient Safety
  • Professionalism and Ethics

For additional information, please visit the ABPath website and click on the MOC Examination Module Blueprints section. Each module has a detailed outline of topic coverage.

The BoardVitals question bank also targets the AOBPa OCC continuous certification exam. Additional resources may be available via the USCAP, AASCP, and CAP.
