In July 2021, the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery will be launching the upgraded CertLink Platform.   There will be a short break between the last day of the second quarter and when new questions are released. Once the platform has been upgraded you will receive an automated email letting you know new questions are available. Please note you will be required to reset your password for security purposes.

Some of the upgrades include:

Logging in 

FAQs, Support, and Readiness system check available on both the log in page and in the platform, on the upper right menu. 

Unread notifications will be presented upon logging in. These messages can be viewed at any time by going to the Messages icon on the upper right menu.


Your performance card will provide additional details about how your score is calculated.


You will be able to edit your email from your profile page.

Answering Questions

Improved user experience when answering questions: 

A button by every option and a new strike out icon make answer selection more intuitive.

If an option is selected but you don’t submit your answer before the time runs out, the selected option will be automatically submitted as your answer.

Highlighting will be automatic when you select text in the question.

Refreshing the browser page while answering a question will no longer automatically score the question incorrect.
