2021 MBSAQIP MBSCR Certification Exam

Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program® (MBSAQIP®) Metabolic and Bariatric Surgical Clinical Reviewer Certification Exam

MBSAQIP® requires, in addition to the initial MBSCR training and certification, that all eligible MBSCRs complete the requirements of annual recertification. The annual recertification typically takes place in March of each calendar year. The purpose of this certification is to measure the MBSCRs current level of knowledge and understanding of MBSAQIP®, including aspects such as case inclusion, variable definitions, and other program guidelines.  Those who pass the certification exam demonstrate competency in the application of the program's rigorous data definitions. 

Please note, as hospitals are still recovering from the impacts of COVID-19, MBSAQIP® moved the start date of the exam to April 1, 2021. The completion timeframe has also been extended to June 30, 2021. The 2021 MBSAQIP® MBSCR Certification exam will be available April 1, 2021, and close on June 30, 2021

All eligible MBSCRs are registered to take this exam if initial MBSCR training was completed prior to January 1, 2021, as annual certification requirements are completed during initial training.
