Please contact the board at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Please note: Applicants will receive an email from the American Osteopathic Board of Pediatrics (AOBP) once all application materials have been submitted. This may take a week or two and will depend on the volume of applications that were received. Once an applicant's file is complete, it will be submitted to the Credentials Committee for review and approval and the applicant will be notified if the Credentials Committee requests any additional information. Once the Credentials Committee approves a candidate's application, the candidate's name and information will be submitted to Prometric. After the AOBP receives notification from Prometric that the candidate has been entered into their system, the candidate will receive another email with an approval letter that includes instructions for registering with Prometric and general examination instructions. Once applicants receive this letter, applicants will need to register with a Prometric site as soon as possible in order to secure their seat at their preferred Prometric location.
