Although a primary duty of the members of the ABFPRS Board of Directors is to serve as examiners during the annual oral examination, from time to time the Board may invite other surgeons to serve as guest examiners if the number of examinees warrants additional examiners.
Guest examiners serve one-year terms, renewable by the ABFPRS President.
Guest examiners must be committed to the Board’s purpose as evidenced by committee work and regular dues payment, certified by the ABFPRS, and recommended by the President.
They also must sign a confidentiality statement (PDF).
