Clinical Practice Evaluation Schedule

All Exams registrations are processed on a first come, first served basis. Candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible as availability is limited.  Candidates may register for the next available exam only.

Exact details regarding locations and session times will be provided upon registration.

Candidates must be aware that due to clinic availability and the number of candidates applying, evaluations are usually scheduled on weekends, including Saturday and Sunday. Session dates may also include the preceding Friday or Monday following the scheduled weekend.

Candidates are scheduled for one day only. Candidates are not permitted to select a specific CPE date/day unless the CPE Application Form received is accompanied by a Request for Special Testing Accommodations form. Please ensure when submitting your application for a site with multiple dates that you are available to participate in either date. Candidates must also be aware that due to reasons beyond the NDAEB’s control, evaluation dates at specific sites may change after the application deadline. In such cases, the NDAEB will advise candidates as soon as possible. While scheduling changes rarely occur, candidates should plan accordingly.

Before registering, please read the CPE Candidate Handbook available to view and download on this site. After reviewing the CPE Candidate Handbook please contact our office if you have any questions.

CPE Schedules

CPE Schedules are subject to change. Candidates are responsible for fully reading all e-mail correspondence and documentation posted to the Candidate Portal. Failure to do so may result in a missed session and fees will be assessed.

CPE Site Capacity and Availability

Availability and capacity are limited so register early! Registration for the CPE is on a first-come, first-served basis. Each site can only take a limited number of candidates. Once the maximum number of registrants is received, the site will be closed. In very rare circumstances may registrations be placed on a wait list.
