3 The (ABFAS) certification process consists of Part I and Part II examinations. Part I of the Certification in Foot Surgery Examination process leads to Board Qualified in Foot Surgery. Part I of the Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery Examination process leads to Board Qualified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. Board Qualified in Foot Surgery is a prerequisite to Board Qualified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. Part II of the Certification in Foot Surgery Examination process leads to Board Certified in Foot Surgery. Part II of the Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Examination process leads to Board Certified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. Board Certified in Foot Surgery is a prerequisite for Board Certified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. Candidates completing residency programs in June 2014 or later have seven (7) years from the year of residency completion to complete the requirements for ABFAS certification. A candidate must complete Part I and Part II of the Foot Surgery examinations within the seven-year period. In addition, a candidate seeking Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery (RRA) certification must complete Part I and Part II of the RRA examinations within the same seven (7) years. Candidates unsuccessful in achieving certification by the close of the seventh year are no longer eligible for ABFAS certification. For example, a resident completing a residency in 2015 must pass Parts I and II by December 31, Important Information - Part I examinations leading to Board Qualified status Calendar of Important Dates May 2015 Part I Examinations October 2015 Part I Examinations November 3, 2014 Registration opens August 17, 2015 April 28, 2015 Registration closes October 9, 2015 May 5, 2015 Last day to withdraw w/o penalty October 9, 2015 May 19, 2015 Administration of examination October 27, 2015 The ABFAS offers the Part I Foot and RRA examinations on May 19, 2015 and October 27, 2015, at testing centers throughout the United States. Candidates may apply beginning November 3, 2014 for the May examinations and August 17, 2015 for the October examinations. The ABFAS strongly encourages early registration to lessen the possibility of having to travel to a distant testing enter. See Application process on page 8. The 2015 Part I Foot and RRA examinations consist of two sections. One section consists of didactic (i.e., multiple-choice) questions. The other section consists of Computer-based Patient Simulation (CBPS) cases. The ABFAS scores the didactic and CBPS sections separately, and candidates must pass both sections to achieve Board Qualified status. For effects of passing or failing the Part I examinations, see Table 1 on page 12. Part I Certification in Foot Surgery The ABFAS accepts applications for Part I of the Certification in Foot Surgery Examination only from Page 3

4 candidates who completed one of the following Council on Podiatric Medical Education (CPME)-approved residency programs prior to the end of calendar year 2015: A minimum of two years of residency training (12 months of which must be in a podiatric surgical residency [PSR])* A Podiatric Medicine and Surgery residency (PM&S-24* or PM&S-36) A Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency (PMSR) *NOTE: Candidates without Board Qualified status who completed a CPME-approved residency of less than three years have until December 31, 2018 to complete the ABFAS board certification process. Beginning January 1, 2019, such candidates are ineligible for ABFAS certification. Candidates with Board Qualified status who completed a CPME-approved residency of less than three years may pursue board certification until expiration of Board Qualified status. Candidates may apply for requalification; however, any requalification may not extend beyond December 31, Part I Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery The ABFAS accepts applications for Part I of the Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery Examination only from candidates who completed one of the following CPME-approved residency programs prior to the end of calendar year 2015: A PSR-24* or a PM&S-36 A Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency/Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery (PMSR/RRA) *NOTE: Candidates without Board Qualified status who completed a CPME-approved residency of less than three years have until December 31, 2018 to complete the ABFAS board certification process. Beginning January 1, 2019, such candidates are ineligible for ABFAS certification. Candidates with Board Qualified status who completed a CPME-approved residency of less than three years may pursue board certification until expiration of Board Qualified status. Candidates may apply for requalification; however, any requalification may not extend beyond December 31, General Requirements for Part I Examinations Candidates sitting for Part I of either certification examination must have completed the minimum surgical training requirements as defined in the applicable CPME 320 document and verified through Podiatry Residency Resource (PRR). It is incumbent on the individual resident to be aware of the minimum requirements and to ensure that these requirements are met as a prerequisite for successful completion of residency training. Insufficient verified documentation of adequate diversity and volume of surgical activity while in surgical residency training may result in failure to receive, or if received, the withdrawal of, Board Qualified status. The awarding of a residency completion certificate from a CPME-approved residency training program alone will not suffice for Board Qualified status. (See Requirements for Part I, page 9, for additional requirements.) Part I requirements for both examinations include the submission of residency surgical case logs (see page 10). The ABFAS requires submission through PRR of all logs reflecting training subsequent Page 4

5 to July 1, If Board Qualified status in Foot Surgery expires before Board Qualified status in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery, the ABFAS suspends RRA status until the candidate successfully reestablishes the required status in Foot Surgery (provided that status in RRA has not expired prior to the reestablishment of status in Foot Surgery). Individuals holding Board Qualified status prior to 2014 may requalify for Part I of either examination until expiration of the initial qualified status.* Such individuals may requalify one time, i.e., may hold Board Qualified status for no more than 14 years. Individuals seeking requalification must meet the following requirements: a. Submit proof of current active hospital surgical privileges commensurate with the requested level of qualification b. Retake and pass Part I of the certification examination(s) c. Meet all other requirements for Part I at the time of application *NOTE: Candidates without Board Qualified status who completed a CPME-approved residency of less than three years have until December 31, 2018 to complete the ABFAS board certification process. Beginning January 1, 2019, such candidates are ineligible for ABFAS certification. Candidates with Board Qualified status who completed a CPME-approved residency of less than three years may pursue board certification until expiration of Board Qualified status. Candidates may apply for requalification; however, any requalification may not extend beyond December 31, Important Information - Part II examinations leading to Board Certified status Calendar of Important Dates May 2015 Part II Examinations Candidates applying for Case Review and CBPS or Case Review only November 3, 2014 Registration opens December 8, 2014 Registration and fees due Within 48 hours, candidates receive instructions for Facility Surgical Practice Verification and Facility Surgical Procedure List Attestation January 12, 2015 Deadline for Facility Surgical Procedure List Attestation February 2, 2015 Within 48 hours, candidates passing facility list audit notified by that list of procedures for complete case documentation is available on candidate s PLS site March 15, 2015 Last day to withdraw from Case Analysis w/o penalty March 30, 2015 Deadline for candidate submission of complete case documentation May 5, 2015 Last day to withdraw from CBPS w/o penalty May 20, 2015 Administration of CBPS examination Page 5

The following information addresses many of the questions that may arise concerning Certification in Foot Surgery and Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery requirements. The ABFAS , Instructions for Submitting Case Documentation, contains information concerning preparation of procedure documentation, the application process, and fees. Applying for Part I of the Certification Examinations Membership in Other Organizations The ABFAS certification requires no affiliation with other professional organizations. Definitions The ABFAS adopted the following definitions for candidates who pass Part I of the certification examinations: Board Qualified in Foot Surgery A podiatric surgeon who has passed Part I of the Certification in Foot Surgery Examination may be declared Board Qualified in Foot Surgery and will have demonstrated a level of capability in the diagnosis of general medical problems, including the diagnosis and surgical management of foot diseases, deformities, and/or trauma, and those structures that affect the foot and ankle. Board Qualified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery A podiatric surgeon who has passed Part I of the Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery Examination may be declared Board Qualified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery and will have demonstrated a level of capability in the diagnosis of general medical problems, including the diagnosis and surgical management of foot and ankle diseases, deformities, and/or trauma, and those structures which affect the foot, ankle, and leg. NOTE: Passing Part I of the Certification in Foot Surgery Examination is a prerequisite for Board Qualified in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. In addition, loss of Board Qualified status in Foot Surgery results in suspension of Board Qualified status in RRA until status in Foot Surgery is reestablished (provided, however, that Board Qualified status in RRA has not expired prior to the reestablishment of Board Qualified status in Foot Surgery).

13 Part II Board Certification General Information on Applying for Part II of the Certification Examination Membership in Other Organizations The ABFAS certification requires no affiliation with other professional organizations. Definitions The ABFAS adopted the following definitions for candidates who pass Part II of the certification examinations: Certification in Foot Surgery A podiatric surgeon who passes Part I and Part II of the Certification in Foot Surgery Examination will have demonstrated knowledge and skills of podiatric surgery, including the diagnosis of general medical problems and surgical management of foot diseases, deformities, and/or trauma, and those structures that affect the foot and ankle. Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery A podiatric surgeon who passes Part I and Part II of the Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery Examination will have demonstrated knowledge and skills of podiatric surgery, including the diagnosis of general medical problems and surgical management of foot and ankle diseases, deformities, and/or trauma, and those structures that affect the foot, ankle, and leg. Certification in Foot Surgery is a prerequisite for Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. Certification Process All candidates participating in the 2015 Case Analysis process take the Part II administration of the CBPS examination. Candidates must pass the Case Analysis process and the CBPS examination to achieve board certification. The ABFAS reports results of the Case Analysis process and CBPS examination together. Candidates passing the Case Analysis process or the CBPS of the Part II examination receive credit for the portion passed, but no ABFAS status. CBPS or Case Analysis credit is valid for the year received, plus the following six (6) years or until eligibility for ABFAS certification expires, whichever occurs first. Case Logging Effective January 1, 2009, the ABFAS established the Podiatry Logging Service for Surgery (PLS), where ABFAS Board Qualified surgeons log their surgical procedures. All surgical procedures performed January 1, 2009 or later (or when candidate first achieved Board Qualified status subsequent to January 1, 2009) must be entered on PLS; however, the surgeon also may enter any non-residency procedures performed after January 31, Page 13

14 Case Selection The ABFAS selects 10 Foot Surgery cases and/or 10 Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery cases from the candidate s logs recorded on PLS (see the ABFAS document 220 for instructions on submitting case documentation). Candidates apply for the Part II certification examination online through their personal page at by December 8, An ABFAS username and password are required to access the personal page. Follow instructions on the ABFAS homepage ( to request your username and password. Facility Case List Verification Candidates must log on PLS all surgical cases performed in accredited facilities. Failure to log all surgical cases on PLS will result in the candidate being denied access to the Part II examination for that year, at the discretion of the ABFAS. The ABFAS selects cases randomly for verification with the facilities where the candidate performed the cases to corroborate the case and procedure information submitted and to confirm the accreditation status of the facility. The facility list audit process consists of the following steps: Registration due 12/8/2014 Facility case materials due 1/12/2015 All compatible facility lists reviewed Cases logged correctly. 2/2/2015 receives list of cases selected Candidate fails facility case audit Complete case submission due 3/30/2015 No cases selected May reapply for 2016 Page 14

15 An accredited healthcare facility includes, but is not limited to, a facility accredited by The Joint Commission, Joint Commission International, the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), or the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). Period of Certification Initial certification is for a period of ten (10) years. Diplomate Certificates On successful completion of all certification requirements, the ABFAS issues appropriate certificates confirming the candidate to be a: Diplomate of the with Certification in Foot Surgery and (if applicable) Diplomate of the with Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery Bylaws Submission of the application certifies agreement and compliance with the Bylaws of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery (dba ). A copy of the Bylaws is available online at or by request. Recertification Diplomates are issued time-dated certificates and must recertify every 10 years. Because these Diplomates must recertify during the eighth, ninth or tenth year after initial certification, the three-year window of opportunity will be open in 2023, 2024, and Complete information can be found in the ABFAS 112 online at Withdrawal Candidates may withdraw from the examination process by notifying the ABFAS by fax, , or mail received no later than March 15, Late withdrawal results in a penalty fee. Candidates must obtain a late withdrawal number confirming withdrawal from the examination. No Shows Candidates not appearing for the examination and not withdrawing before the day of the examination forfeit all fees. Reexamination and Reactivation Candidates with case documentation approval prior to 2013 who either withdrew before taking an examination in previous years or must retake any part(s) of the certification examination may apply for reexamination or reactivation until their Board Qualified status expires, or when the case approval expires. Effective with the 2015 examination cycle, the ABFAS will implement a revised Part II examination process. All candidates must participate in a new surgical Case Analysis process. Page 15

16 The ABFAS requires a notarized letter from one accredited healthcare facility verifying current hospital surgical privileges consistent with the area of certification desired (Foot and/or RRA). Candidates must apply for Reexamination or Reactivation online at by April 28, 2015 with fees as listed in Table 3 on page 24.

See t h e ABFAS for details. Case Selection The ABFAS selects 10 r econstructive r earfoot/ankle s urgery cases from the candidate s logs recorded in Podiatry Logging Service for Surgery (PLS). The ABFAS evaluates all procedures included in each case. Candidates must review the ABFAS document 220 for complete details on the changes and requirements for case selection and documentation. Please note that the ABFAS does not accept residency procedures for case documentation. Candidates must meet all other requirements for Part I and Part II before receiving final examination results and/or award of certification. Examinations A candidate must pass Part I and Part II of the Certification Examination in Foot Surgery and Part I and Part II of the Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery for certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. NOTE: Candidates completing a residency program in 2014 or later have seven (7) years from time of completion of residency training to become Board Certified.

Table 2 on page 19 lists the effects of passing or failing various parts of the examinations. The ABFAS provides examination scores or results for failed examinations.

The result of each specific scenario is listed in Column Part(s) Being Taken Foot Surgery Results RRA Surgery Results New Status Achieved All Four Parts Foot Surgery Part I Foot Surgery Part II RRA Surgery Part I RRA Surgery Part II Three Parts (When the candidate is already Board Qualified in Foot Surgery) Foot Surgery Part I RRA Surgery Part I RRA Surgery Part II Two Parts (When the candidate is already certified in Foot Surgery) RRA Surgery Part I RRA Surgery Part II Two Parts (When the candidate is already Board Qualified in Foot and RRA Surgery) Foot Surgery Part II RRA Surgery Part II One Part (When the candidate is already certified in Foot Surgery and Board Qualified in RRA Surgery) RRA Surgery oral Pass both parts Pass Part I Fail Part II Fail Part I Pass* or fail Part II Fail both parts Pass Part II Fail Part II Passed in previous years (status active) Pass Part II Fail Part II Passed in previous years (status active) Pass both parts Pass Part I Fail Part II Fail Part I Pass* or fail Part II Pass Part I Pass* or fail Part II Fail Part I Pass* or fail Part II Fail Part I Pass* or fail Part II Pass* or fail Part I Pass* or fail Part II Pass both parts Pass Part I Fail Part II Fail Part I Pass* or fail Part II Pass Part I Pass* or fail Part II Fail Part I Pass Part II* Pass both parts Pass Part I Fail Part II Fail Part I Pass* or fail Part II Pass Part II Fail Part II Pass Part II* Pass Part II Fail Part II Certified in Foot Surgery Certified in RRA Surgery Certified in Foot Surgery Board Qualified in RRA Surgery** Certified in Foot Surgery Board Qualified in Foot Surgery** Board Qualified in RRA Surgery** Board Qualified in Foot Surgery** No status No status Certified in Foot Surgery Certified in RRA Surgery Certified in Foot Surgery Board Qualified in RRA Surgery** Certified in Foot Surgery Board Qualified in RRA Surgery** (remains Board Qualified in Foot Surgery***) No RRA status (remains Board Qualified in Foot Surgery***) Certified in RRA Surgery Board Qualified in RRA Surgery** (remains Certified in Foot Surgery) No RRA status (remains Certified in Foot Surgery) Certified in Foot Surgery Certified in RRA Surgery Certified in Foot Surgery (remains Board Qualified in RRA Surgery***) No new status (remains Board Qualified in both Foot and RRA Surgery***) Certified in RRA Surgery No new status (remains certified in Foot Surgery and Board Qualified in RRA Surgery***) * Because Foot Surgery certification is a prerequisite to RRA certification, failing to achieve Foot Surgery certification prevents RRA certification, even if candidate passes both parts of the RRA examination. However, if a candidate passes either part of the RRA examination, that candidate receives credit for those examinations passed (See Part I, Section B. 5). **Board Qualified status is granted for seven (7) years. ***Board Qualified status date does not change (granted for seven [7] years from date of passing the board qualification examination). Page 19

20 Examination Information The Part I examinations are computer- administered test(s) at Pearson VUE testing centers. T h e ABFAS offers the Part I Foot and RRA examinations on May 19, 2015 and October 27, Candidates taking both Part I examinations take those examinations on the same day. Examination site selection opens November 3, 2014 for the May examinations and August 17, 2015 for the October examinations. Candidates must pay all fees before receiving access to site selection.

On May 20, 2015, the ABFAS administers the CBPS portion of the Part II examinations as a computeradministered test(s) at Pearson VUE testing centers. Examination Study Guide (ABFAS 420) and Computer-based Patient Simulation (CBPS) practice cases The ABFAS offers an Online Study Guide at Click on Members, BQ, & Candidates in the tool bar at the top of the home page. From the drop down list, select Documents. There is a series of tabs at the top of the page. Click the ABFAS 420 tab. In the lower right panel under Quick Links, click Online Study Guide. This opens the StepUp elearning website. Use your ABFAS username and password to access the site. The guide contains information about subject areas covered in ABFAS examinations and examples of the Part I and the Part II questions. The ABFAS strongly encourages candidates to access the Computer-based Patient Simulation practice cases on the ABFAS website by logging on to their personal page and clicking on the hyperlink in the lower right panel. There is unlimited access to the practice cases. Examination Admission Candidates sitting for the Part I examination(s) receive an appointment schedule (printed when the candidate selects a date and site). The testing center requires candidates to provide two forms of identification, one of which must be a valid, government-issued photo ID (e.g., driver s license or passport). Candidates sitting for the CBPS portion of the Part II examination(s) receive an appointment schedule (printed when the candidate selects a date and site). The testing center requires candidates to provide two forms of identification, one of which must be a valid, government-issued photo ID (e.g., driver s license or passport). Part I Examinations The Part I examinations demonstrate the candidate's cognitive knowledge and clinical reasoning skills of medicine and surgery and the perioperative care of the podiatric surgical patient. Page 20

21 General Information Format The Part I examination consists of two sections. One section consists of didactic (i.e., multiple-choice) questions. Each question has only ONE best answer. The second section is a Computer-based Patient Simulation (CBPS) assessment. The purpose of the CBPS format is to evaluate the candidate s clinical reasoning skills. This type of testing is referred to as performance-based testing. The CBPS examines content knowledge and the candidate s ability to solve problems and make clinically relevant decisions. Both types of questions involve some interpretation of pictorial materials. Scoring The ABFAS provides scores and results (for failed examinations) as scale scores. Examinations are not graded on a curve. The Board of Directors sets passing scores based on psychometric evaluation of the examinations. See Table 1, page 12, for the effects of passing and/or failing the examination. Review of Scores While scoring of each examination is by computer, there is a recheck and review of failed examinations. Therefore, once the ABFAS mails examination results to candidates, there is no further review of scores. Inclusion of Nonscored Questions The ABFAS may include some questions in the examinations to improve the examination system and to provide data for investigations into the examination process. Such questions do not count in determining candidate scores. Part I Examination in Foot Surgery Content The examination involves diagnostic and perioperative care of the podiatric surgical patient encompassing the foot and ankle. Intraoperative areas include surgical procedures of the entire foot with the exception of RRA procedures. Schedule The examination includes a maximum of 125 multiple-choice questions and a maximum of eight CBPS cases administered in one session lasting no more than four hours. Part I Examination in Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle Surgery. Content The examination involves diagnostic, intraoperative, and perioperative care of the podiatric surgical patient pertaining to RRA procedures. Schedule The examination includes a maximum of 125 multiple-choice questions and a maximum of eight CBPS cases administered in one session lasting no more than four hours. Page 21
