Why is it Important for Physicians to Promote their ABOIM Diplomate Status?

ABOIM Diplomate MarkToday, the importance of being board certified in your area of expertise has never been greater. Not only do employers value board certification, many organizations are actually beginning to require that their doctors be certified in their respective specialties. And, make no mistake, this is a direct result of the interest that the general public has shown in turning to board certified physicians. As a result, it’s understandable that Diplomates at the American Board of Integrative Medicine® (ABOIM) are so motivated to promote their coveted ABOIM status.

While not everyone knows the exact requirements that physicians must meet in order to earn board certification, nearly everyone recognizes that board certification is a good barometer of a physician’s qualifications. When the time comes to secure a physician, just about everyone will turn to the board certified physician if there is a choice between several candidates. This is particularly relevant in the field of Integrative Medicine, where the American Board of Physician Specialties® became the first major national multi-specialty physician certifying organization to offer board certification when we developed the ABOIM. The fact is that ABOIM Diplomates have something that other physicians in their specialty don’t, and that needs to be proudly advertised to the public.

To assist our Diplomates in their marketing endeavors, we have designed a logomark that helps brand them as Integrative Medicine physicians. We strongly encourage our Diplomates to feature this logo prominently on:

  • Websites
  • Business cards
  • Mailers
  • Advertisements
  • Newsletters
  • Social media
  • Other branding campaigns

Patient Care Is Our Priority

Medical organizations throughout North America understand that our rigorous certification standards prove that ABPS Diplomates are capable of delivering the best patient care possible.

I feel truly blessed and grateful to be an internal medicine board-certified diplomate with the American Board of Physician Specialties. Their ongoing, steadfast commitment to physician board(s) enhancement, forward focused vision, and tenacity is second to none. ABPS has become a recognized choice in Physician Board Certification.

To be the best, you must measure yourself against the best. Achieving Board Certification in Emergency Medicine by the ABPS gave me the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of the art of EM in an objective way. The high bar that ABPS sets for candidates to be allowed to take both the written and oral exam is a testament to ABPS's rigorous vetting of one's ability to practice Emergency Medicine at a high level. By maintaining these credentials, I've been able to instill confidence in my abilities at the department/employer level and ultimately with the patients that choose to seek emergency care at the facilities at which I practice.

The American Board of Physician Specialties has supported the entire field of Integrative Medicine in sponsoring our board. It has been so validating of the importance of prevention-oriented and holistic approaches to care while emphasizing the scientific basis of this specialty to have it recognized by ABPS. I am proud to have been one of the first groups to be board certified by ABPS in Integrative Medicine, leading the way for others committed to training in this specialty.
