The SPEX ® is a computerized, multiple-choice examination of current knowledge requisite for the general, undifferentiated practice of medicine. The examination is used to re-examine a physician's ongoing level of basic medical knowledge and is intended for physicians who currently hold, or who have previously held, a valid, unrestricted license to practice medicine in the US or Canada.
State boards may require SPEX for endorsement of licensure, reinstatement, or reactivation of a license after a period of inactivity. If the board has or is aware of concerns and/or questions about a physician's fitness to practice, SPEX results should be evaluated in conjunction with other available evidence to determine a physician's competence and fitness to practice.
The SPEX fee is currently $1400 per application.
Detailed information about SPEX eligibility requirements, applying for SPEX, scheduling an exam, preparing for the exam, and score reporting is available at: http://www.fsmb.org/spex-plas/spex-application/.
