2019 Examination Committee Applications – New Deadline!
The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) is accepting applications for the 2019 Examination Committee. To apply, please login to your ABPD profile and click on the EC Online Application link located in the top-left menu. Applications, including completed reference forms, must be received by the ABPD headquarters office no later than August 1, 2018.
The Examination Committee (EC) was formed to ensure that our examinations test the Candidates' in-depth knowledge of the specialty of pediatric dentistry.
Subcommittee member assignments are based on the needs of the Examination Committee. Depending on the subcommittee assignment, members develop items for the Qualifying Examination or the Renewal of Certification Examination, assist in the development of vignettes for the Oral Clinical Examination or the Continuous Quality Improvement modules for the Renewal of Certification Process.
2019 Examination Committee Subcommittee Criteria:
A Diplomate shall meet the following criteria to be considered for a subcommittee member appointment of the Examination Committee (EC):
- A Diplomate in good standing.
- Must be at least five years since Board certification.
- Must be actively involved in direct patient care or clinical teaching of pediatric dentistry on a weekly basis.
- Must be a member of the AAPD in good standing.
Appointments are a 1-year term and may be extended annually to a maximum of five years. Reappointments are based on performance and the needs of the Examination Committee. After a Diplomate has served a five-year term on the Examination Committee and wish to serve again they can reapply following a 12-month hiatus.
Subcommittee members must participate in the Examination Committee Workshop scheduled January 31-February 2, 2019. Subcommittee members will also be required to participate in the Renewal of Certification Process, if not already enrolled.
