    As far as I know, there are NO E&M for Specialties. E&M is just that, an E&M. Each level having it's own criteria. All specialties must meet the same requirements.

    Are you looking for single system exams? Those are in the 97 guidelines.


    Anyone can use any of the exams but sometimes it is more beneficial to specialists to use the single system exam.
