Examination Details


No specific recommendation about study methods or review courses may be made. However, extensive self-study of Proctology in texts and journals and participation in continuing medical education programs and review courses in Proctology should be useful.


Candidates will be informed of the results of the examination within 90 days following the examination date. Successful candidates will receive a certificate for Certification in Proctology notating an expiration date of ten years thereafter. The certificate will be awarded after the AOA Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists gives final approval of the exam process for each candidate. This approval process may take about six months following the notification of successful completion of the examination.
