Honor Code

Applicants sign an Honor Code when applying for certification. This is a legally binding contract between the physician and the ABPath.

Any violations of the Honor Code may be sufficient to bar a person from qualification, terminate participation in an examination, invalidate the results of a candidate’s examination, cause the withholding or revocation of scores or certificates, or merit other appropriate action by the ABPath. 

Read and/or download the Honor Code Statement.
