Online Practice Sample Submission

ABCCAP is now using a HIPAA-compliant online system for uploading Stage II practice samples (including video samples and written materials). Candidates should email the relevant practice sample/exam coordinator when they are ready to submit a practice sample ( for regular exams; for senior exams). Candidates will then receive instructions about how to securely upload their materials for ABCCAP review.
