American Board of Pathology Announces a Three-Year Extension of the Practice Pathway for Certification in Clinical Informatics


TAMPA, Fla., (March 8, 2022)- The American Board of Pathology (ABPath) is pleased to announce the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) recently approved the ABPath’s request to extend the time-limited Practice Pathway for the Clinical Informatics subspecialty. The extension is for three years through the 2025 exam cycle.

The Clinical Informatics certification exam is a joint and equal function of the ABPath and the American Board of Preventative Medicine. The Practice Pathway allows physicians with substantial experience in the practice of Clinical Informatics, but who have not completed an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Clinical Informatics, the opportunity to apply for the Clinical Informatics certification exam. For more information and the rationale for the request to extend the Practice Pathway, visit Extension of the Practice Pathway for Certification in Clinical Informatics.
