Hospital & Healthcare Organization Credentialers Increasingly Look for ABPS Board Certification
At the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we work tirelessly to ensure that our Diplomates get all of the professional opportunities that they deserve. A central component to this relationship is that, in recent years, we have made tremendous progress building lasting relationships with hospitals and other healthcare organization credentialers throughout United States. Today, the ABPS is the third-largest multi-specialty physician certifying organization in the country, and our Diplomates actively practice medicine in all 50 states as well as Canada and Puerto Rico.
To become Board Certified through one of our various Member Boards, aspiring Diplomates must meet a variety of standardized eligibility requirements. While this process can be rigorous, it provides assurance to healthcare organizations that our Diplomates have successfully passed psychometrically, peer-validated examinations, have extensive experience in their area of expertise, and possess a high level of training in their specialty. In short, our Diplomates are leaders in their communities.
One example of the ways that we publicize the qualifications of our Diplomates is by attending major industry conferences across the nation, including the National Association of Medical Staff Services conference. By meeting credentialers and other medical staff face to face, we are able to explain the numerous advantages to employing ABPS Diplomates, helping our physicians pursue new career opportunities and grow in their specialty.
As more healthcare organizations are beginning to require that their physicians be Board Certified, it is extremely important that ABPS Diplomates are viewed on similar criteria as physicians from competing certifying organizations. At the ABPS, we take this seriously and are committed to providing credentialers with the information that they need to make a sound decision when it comes time to recruit physician talent.
