Registration for Your In-training Exam

Residency directors register you for the In-training Exams in PRR. After they register you, you will receive an email from ABFAS letting you know that you can schedule your exam. Please wait for the email.

  • Your program must register you for the correct In-training Exams before you can access your ABFAS profile and/or schedule your exams with Pearson VUE.
  • If you are not able to access your ABFAS profile or schedule your exams, please first confirm that your residency director or program coordinator has registered you before contacting ABFAS. 
  • Be sure to complete all information in your PRR personal profile. You will not be able to access your ABFAS profile or schedule your In-training exams until you complete your PRR profile.
