Verification of ABPS Board-Certified Physicians

Verification of ABPS Board-Certified PhysiciansThe American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) offers a fast, accurate, and dependable system for verifying the board certification of our Diplomates. A perfect solution for hospitals, credentialing agencies, and healthcare organizations, our Online Verification Database can provide official verification of ABPS board certification in a matter of minutes.

This online system was developed by the country’s largest and most experienced certification verification organization, Aperture Credentialing, LLC. Within the system, you’ll have access to the physician’s specialty or specialties, certificate number, and expiration date. Additionally, our database contains primary source-verified educational information for most of our physicians, which may be used for credentialing and other professional purposes.

In order to access this system, click here. The first time you visit the database, you’ll be required to create a user account for your organization. On future visits, however, you’ll need to enter only your username and password to log in. Once inside the Online Verification Database, you’ll have the opportunity to search for physicians using last name, first name, and UPIN (unique physician identification number). A limited amount of physician information will be available before you purchase the profile to help you confirm that you have located the correct physician. Each full profile costs $40 and will be billed to the credit card associated with the user account.

If you have any questions about the ABPS Online Verification Database, please contact us. If you are having difficulty accessing your account, please call 813-433-2277.

Additionally, if you are a member of the general public, we can provide you with free online confirmation about a physician’s board certification with the ABPS. This public database is intended for personal use only and not for official verification or credentialing purposes.

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.

When I think historically, advancement in medicine and patient safety and care has been driven by the diversity of people and scientific thought. That’s what I found at the ABPS and more. For over 60 years that is just who we are. I found a physician certifying body that provides a choice and voice to all physicians ensuring that patients are always placed first.

When I decided to pursue a full time role as a physician executive it was important to me to obtain additional professional training, education and work experience. Board certification through the ABPS in Administrative Medicine is validation of my efforts and a demonstration of dedication to professional development. We need more physicians to become full time health care executives, knowing there is a board certification option in Administrative Medicine encourages physicians to take the leap from full time clinical practice to healthcare organizational leadership.

The American Board of Physician Specialties has provided me with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of internal medicine through board certification. As a hospitalist, board certification is an expected credential, and hospitals recognize the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS) as one of the three standard credentialling bodies for Internal Medicine. Additionally, the ABPS has helped me develop leadership skills as a Board member and Committee Chairperson. ABPS has also helped me sharpen critical thinking skills as a test question developer and reviewer. The Allopathic (MD) and Osteopathic (DO) physicians in the ABPS are lifelong learners and frequently pursue multiple board certifications. I enjoy the camaraderie of my peers in ABPS.
