ABAARM Certification - How It Works

The American Board of Anti-Aging / Regenerative Medicine (ABAARM) offers Board Certification to individuals with MD, DO, DPM, and MBBS degrees.

The long-term objective of ABAARM is to achieve formal sub-specialty recognition and a new status for Anti-Aging Medicine.

ABAARM Process

In order to complete the ABAARM program, an individual must complete 3 Parts.

  • Part I is composed of a Written Exam
  • Part II is composed of an Oral Exam

*Both parts must be taken on separate dates and at separate venues.

Typically examinees complete both steps within the timeframe of one year.

However, after an examinee successfully completes Part I: Written Exam, they have a total of two years to complete Part II: Oral Exam.

After successfully completing Part II: the Oral Exam, the examinee must complete the final part. 

Part III: Submission of Eligibility Requirements:  Once an examinee completes Part I and II, the examinee is given 6 months to submit their eligibility requirements to complete their Certification Process.
