Resident Physicians Deserve a Choice in Board Certification
At the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we urge resident physicians to research their options when the time comes to consider board certification in their area of expertise. There are three primary national multi-specialty certifying organizations in North America, and each organization has its own unique advantages. For this reason, it is essential for a physician to ensure that he or she becomes certified with the Member Board and certifying authority that offers them the best professional opportunities.
It is our belief that resident physicians deserve a choice in board certification, and we have positioned our organization to ensure that our Member Boards lend a voice to our Diplomates. When you choose to pursue board certification with one of our various boards, you will become part of a community of like-minded physician leaders who represent some of the most highly trained and skilled physicians in your area of expertise. We also advocate passionately on behalf of our Diplomates, and have a strong track record of work with credentialing authorities, hiring groups, hospital organizations, and legislators to get our physicians the credit and opportunities they deserve.
At present, the ABPS has 12 distinct Member Boards that offer board certification and recertification in 18 different specialties to highly qualified physician candidates. A complete list of each of our Member Boards can be found here.
