Updated ABOto certificates available at a reduced price of $60!

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto), we are pleased to inform you that the neurotology subspecialty certificate has been modified to include a phrase that reflects both adult and pediatric neurotology. This change was made to ensure that the scope of practice of a board certified neurotologist is clear, and that both pediatric and adult patient conditions are within the purview of our Neurotology diplomates. This addition will begin with the new certificates issued in 2018. 
NOTE: The ABOto is undergoing a logo redesign. For board certified Neurotologists that want to reorder a certificate with the new language, this will be available in the Spring of 2019. Reorder certificates will still include the original issue date. The price for reorder certificates will be $60. New certificates can be ordered through your ABOHNS login profile under the Services tab. For questions, you can contact the ABOHNS office directly at 713-850-0399.
