American Board Of Oral Medicine
The ABOM Examinations and Royal College of Surgeons
Fellowship in Dental Surgery – Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh
Through an agreement with the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh, individuals successfully completing the American Board of Oral Medicine Diplomate examination Parts A and B are eligible for Fellowship status (FDS). Because the Spring Part B examination is conjoint (ABOM-RCS), no additional examination is required. The pathways to ABOM Diplomate, and RCS Fellowship status are illustrated in the linked figure. An application for the conjoint examination through the RCSEd must be made in addition to the application through the ABOM. Enquiries about the application process should be directed to the Team Leader-Examinations Section, Careers Information Services Department, Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh.
For 2013, Part A will be held on April 23 and Part B will be held on April 24.
Note: Eligible candidates for the ABOM Diplomate examinations may apply for these (Part A, Part B, Part A&B) without application to the RCS.
Deadline: The applications for the examination must be received by March 1, 2013. A separate application is required for the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh fellowship.
