BOARD CERTIFICATION INFORMATION
Each certifying board within the osteopathic profession has jurisdiction over the examination leading to certification in particular specialties and/or sub-specialties. General certification is achieved through satisfactory completion of residency training, certifying examination and meeting of all other requirements for specialty certification.
INITIAL CERTIFICATION GRANT
In order to relieve some of the financial burden for residents entering the field, the ACOFP Education and Research Foundation launched its Initial Certification Grant, which awards up to $1,400 for exam fees and travel expenses to residents who don’t have complete funding support from their program to be used for the AOBFP exam. Partial grants may be awarded.
The Spring 2022 grant application deadline is February 28, 2022. While applications may be considered on a rolling basis, all applicants are encouraged to submit early.
