Oral Examination Update

June 30, 2020

ABCN remains committed to the health, safety, and well-being of our community. In consideration of the recent resurgence of COVID-19 transmissions that has been reported in various regions of the United States, and the concerns that have been expressed by candidates and examiners, all in-person oral examinations are postponed until further notice.

We recognize the frustration that this notification is likely to cause for those who recently agreed to participate in in-person examinations. ABCN is vigorously pursuing a virtual oral examination that will serve as an alternative to in-person examinations. Candidates will be notified as soon as possible when the virtual examination becomes available. Virtual examinations will be scheduled according to the date that candidates’ original examinations were first scheduled, with priority given to those who were originally scheduled to undergo examinations in April 2020. Every attempt will be made to notify candidates of available virtual examination dates a minimum of four weeks in advance.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility during these difficult times.

Best regards,

Nathaniel Nelson, Ph.D., ABPP
