Thank you for your interest in gaining certification in Addiction Medicine (ADM).
This page will be updated whenever new information is available.
- In March, 2016 the American Board of Medical Specialties announced recognition of ADM as a multispecialty subspecialty. With this formal recognition, ABAM will no longer offer the ADM certification exam, which will now be administered by the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM).
- There will not be an ADM certification examination in 2016. Future exams and eligibility requirements will be determined and managed by ABPM.
- To register your interest in the next ADM exam, please go to the ABPM home page (www.theabpm.org), click on the link in the section “New Subspecialty of Addiction Medicine” and enter your name and contact information. There is also a FAQ link on the ABPM home page.
- Additional information on the recognition of ADM by ABMS, and what this means for current and prospective ADM certified physicians, can be found in the FAQs on this website: http://www.abam.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/4-11-16-FAQ.pdf
Emails and calls to ABPM or ABAM about certification in Addiction Medicine will be referred to this or the ABPM web site.
