EMS Board Certification Exam Review Guide

This review guide can be used as a companion to the two-volume NAEMSP textbook to aide those in preparing for the exam (delivered by ABEM in odd-number years).

EMS Certification Examination

ABEM- and American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine (AOBEM)-certified physicians attain subspecialty certification in EMS by meeting the eligibility criteria, fulfilling specific credential requirements, and passing the EMS Certification Examination.

A New Way to Recertify

ABEM is introducing a new way for EMS physicians to recertify — MyEMSCert.  

MyEMSCert activities were introduced in 2022.

Core elements of MyEMSCert include:  
 Topic-specific modules that incorporate the “bread and butter” issues of EMS
 Open-book modules that can be completed anywhere, anytime
 Immediate feedback providing scores, correct answers, and rationales
 Content that keeps you informed about key advances in EMS

MyEMSCert will replace the current requirements to take a point-in-time recertification examination and ongoing LLSAs. If your EMS certification expires in 2023 or 2025 you still have the option of taking the recertification exam or waiting for the MyEMSCert modules in 2022. If you have registered for the October 2021 EMS Cognitive Expertise Exam and wish to cancel, please contact ABEM.

In addition, starting in 2023, EMS physicians will move to a 5-year certification period after they recertify. No current certificate will be shortened, you only move to a five-year certificate after your current certification expires. As physicians move to a 5-year certification period, ABEM will move to an annual fee structure.

Additional program details will be available later this spring.
