Important Update for Physicians: ARDMS has introduced a companion certification council for physicians – the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement (APCA)! Please read the post below about what APCA means for you.
ARDMS sends Registrants many communications through multiple channels (e.g., mail, postal mail, MY ARDMS) to remind them of the need to renew their certification(s) by the renewal deadline, and to reinstate if the renewal deadline was not met.
If you still have not reinstated by the final reinstatement deadline of August 1, 2017, your certification(s) are permanently revoked, resulting in your need to retake all necessary ARDMS examinations and pay all applicable fees to regain an Active status.
Revocation means that:
• You will no longer hold an Active Registrant status;
• You cannot represent yourself as an ARDMS Registrant with regards to ARDMS certification,
including any misstatement about being ARDMS certified in any specialty to current or
future employers or others;
• You will no longer be included in the Directory of ARDMS Registrants, and your name will be listed
as “no longer certified" on the ARDMS website;
• You can no longer display your ARDMS certification certificate(s); and you will not receive any of
the standard ARDMS privileges and benefits; and
• You will not have access to MY ARDMS or the CME Bank.
If you have questions, contact the Customer Care Team, 9 am - 4 pm EST:
Phone: 301-738-8401, ext. 1

Important Update for Physicians: In June 2016 ARDMS introduced the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement (APCA), your new exclusive certification destination. As a physician, you will now seek information, apply for, prepare for, and maintain both your APCA and ARDMS certifications through APCA.org and the new MY APCA. From this point forward all the services, reminders and notifications about both ARDMS and APCA certification(s) will now be provided to you by APCA.
