The enrollment period for the 2023–2024 cohort has ended. The next opportunity to enroll will open April 2024.

Beginning in September 2023, candidates will be granted access to monthly modules comprised of educational lectures and other resources, including self-assessment questions with accompanying evidence-based explanations. Every module was built using the same learning objectives as our surgeon and fellow education programs, ensuring that the education you receive is aligned. At the conclusion of the program in April 2024, candidates will complete a final comprehensive exam in multiple-choice format.
This program is not yet approved for CME credit. ASBrS plans to apply for approximately 70–80 AAPA Category 1 CME credits from the AAPA Review Panel. An update will be posted with the approved credit hours once the review process is complete. All candidates in the 2023–2024 cohort will be able to receive CME next year at no additional charge.
The APP Breast Certification Program fee is $695. This fee is all-inclusive of the application, learning modules, and final exam. Group discounts are available for the APP Breast Certification Program. Registration closes August 15. Applicants must be members of the Society to apply. Please send any inquiries to Laura Randel, Associate Executive Director.
