The ABPS Board Certification Schedule for 2016

ABPS Board Certification 2016One of the central components to earning board certification through the American Board of Physician Specialties® is the successful completion of a standardized, psychometrically validated examination. We use computer-based testing for all of our written examinations, which are offered at a network of testing centers throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada. In order to be eligible for ABPS board certification or re-certification examination you must apply before the published deadline.

The complete application and examination schedule for 2016 can be found by clicking here.

Upon successful completion of the written examination, candidates in select specialties will be invited to schedule an oral examination. However, it is important to note that not all specialties require an oral examination.

The list of specialties that require an oral examination in Tampa, Fla., as well as the anticipated examination dates, can also be found by clicking here.

Finally, all candidates for our written and oral examinations are responsible for arranging and financing all travel necessary to complete their examinations, and the ABPS is not responsible for reimbursing lost wages, travel costs, and other expenses incurred.

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.
