The Commission on Accreditation for Clinical Chemistry (ComACC), in cooperation with the American Board of Clinical Chemistry (ABCC), has created a list of Core Competencies for the General Clinical Chemistry Examination. This comprehensive document is intended to help candidates prepare for the ABCC Clinical Chemistry Board examination.
The list of core competencies was created by a Task Force comprised of members of the ABCC board, ComACC Commissioners, and ComACC program directors. Previously published curriculum guidelines were reviewed and served as a foundation for this new document. AACC Education Core Committee and the ComACC Commissioners also provided feedback considered in the final document.
The Core Competencies for the General Clinical Chemistry Examination will be reviewed and revised every 5 years as a joint effort between ComACC & ABCC.
