Policies & Procedures Manual Now Available

November 29, 2012

In an effort to provide as much information as possible to our Diplomates, Active Candidates, applicants and others interested in board certification, our website now hosts our entire Policies and Procedures Manual. 63 policies and procedures are now available through the ABO website.

Its contents are split into eleven categories:

  • Board of Directors
  • Officers and Committees
  • Professional Memberships
  • Professional Management
  • Professional Test Development
  • Contractual Agents
  • Board Operations
  • Confidentiality and Security
  • Judicial and Ethics Process
  • Board Certification
  • Diplomate Guidelines

These categories are listed in the left sidebar of the Policies and Procedures page. Once clicked on, the various policies and procedures included in the chosen category will drop down.

The Policies and Procedures Manual is also available to read and/or download as a pdf.

Do you have any questions about the policies or can’t find what you’re looking for? Contact the ABO today.
