Abstract

In 1967 these two Boards agreed that candidates are eligible for examination and subsequent certification by both Boards if they complete one of the following programs involving a minimum of four years of approved house officer training:

  1. Straight pediatric internship, one year of pediatric residency, and two years of residency in internal medicine; or

  2. Straight medical internship, one year of residency in internal medicine, and two years of pediatric residency; or

  3. Internship other than straight pediatric or straight medical, two years of pediatric residency, and two years of residency in internal medicine.

The times at which the candidate may take the examinations for each Board will continue to be as described in the booklets of information published by the respective Boards.
