Associate in the canadian board of occupational medicine (ACBOM)

Requirements for Associate in the Canadian Board of Occupational Medicine (ACBOM) Examination Candidates

No specific work experience is required for eligibility. The candidate obtains ACBOM status by successfully taking a written examination which tests occupational medicine principles and knowledge based on a syllabus and occupational medicine bibliography. This is not an easy examination and applicants are encouraged to take occupational medical training for example through a distance learning program, a diploma, a fellowship, or a master’s degree. Formal training is not required, though it improves the chances of success in the examination.

We are currently not accepting applications for 2022.
