ABPS Self-Assessment Information for 2024

The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc is proud to announce improvements to the Self-Assessment Activity for 2024. To complete these exciting changes, the administration window will open on May 3, 2024.

New improvements include:

  • Updated platform with simplified log in process – Access the assessment with one-click from your ABPS Tracking Page on the Board’s website. No need for an additional log in step or access code.
  • New format – complete the 30-question assessment; If one or more items were answered incorrectly during the first attempt, you will relaunch only those items in an effort to achieve 100%.
  • Expanded administration window – the assessment will remain open for 6 weeks instead of 4.

This year’s assessment will launch Friday, May 3 and close on Friday, June 14, 2024. You will receive an email notification when testing begins. As a reminder, you will choose only one module to complete each year. If you’ve missed any assessments from previous years, you will be able to catch up this Spring.

For diplomates with expired certification, upon successful results, new certificates will include issue dates of April 1, 2024 to remain consistent with prior years.

A short tutorial video is available below, and a tutorial exam is available on the testing website to walk you through the new format. We recommend reading through this set of instructions to prepare for the administration window.

You will receive an email notification when the assessment opens, and regular reminders throughout the administration window. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact staff@abplasticsurgery.org
