Information About the Sports Medicine CAQ Exam:
The Sports Medicine Certification exam is proctored by ABFM to candidates that are preparing for certification or recertification in sports medicine. The exam is jointly developed by the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM), and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), and the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR).
The Sports Medicine exam is a half-day examination offered in computer-based format, and is identical for both certification and recertification candidates. The first-time test taker pass rate for the 2017 Sports Medicine Recertification was 80.9%.
Candidates attempting recertification in Sports Medicine must be certified by one of the associated Boards and in good standing at the time of examination. Candidates must have valid, full and unrestricted license to practice medicine in the United States, its territories, or Canada. In addition, all candidates must have been previously certified in Sports Medicine by examination with the American Board of Family Medicine.
We recommend reviewing the ABFM Candidate Information Booklet on Sports Medicine CAQ for more information about the exam.
