Approved Fellowships for ABOIM® Eligibility
To be eligible to pursue board certification in Integrative Medicine through the American Board of Integrative Medicine® (ABOIM), candidates are required to meet several eligibility requirements that were developed by the ABOIM in conjunction with the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS). One of the ways that candidates can successfully demonstrate that they have the experience and education required to earn board certification in the field is by completing an ABOIM-approved fellowship in Integrative Medicine.
Integrative Medicine is increasingly becoming popular in mainstream medicine and more institutions of higher learning are offering formal fellowship training in the specialty than ever before. At the ABOIM, we are pleased to have developed close relationships with many of the most well known and highest regarded fellowship programs currently available. We strongly encourage that graduates of these programs take the next step and consider board certification as a way to further distinguish themselves within their chosen field.
Board certification indicates that a physician has successfully demonstrated extensive training and experience in their area of expertise. The ABOIM was developed to identify and recognize physicians who have committed themselves to mastering the core concepts and competencies that define Integrative Medicine, and there are few better ways to successfully master the specialty than by completing formal, standardized fellowship training.
If you are considering pursuing board certification in Integrative Medicine and are researching fellowship programs, we strongly encourage you to choose a program from our approved list.
