Board certification in anesthesiology through the ABPS indicates that a physician has fully mastered the core competencies of the specialty.

For example, ABPS Diplomates pledge to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, uphold all laws and regulations relating to the practice of medicine, provide impartial patient care, maintain the confidentiality of privileged information, and improve public understanding of the role of the specialist physicians – among other professional and ethical practices.

ABPS board certification in anesthesiology is, by design, not an easy credential to obtain. Eligibility requirements for physicians who wish to become board certified through the Board of Certification in Anesthesiology (BCA) include the following:

General ABPS Requirements:

  • Submit a completed application and fee
  • Be an active specialist in anesthesiology
  • Hold a degree from a recognized domestic or foreign medical school
  • Possess a valid and unrestricted license to practice medicine in the U.S. or Canada
  • Provide a current curriculum vitae

Anesthesiology-Specific Requirements:

  • Complete both a PGY-1 program or accredited internship AND an approved anesthesiology residency
  • Tender proof of active practice with a letter detailing active privileges and period of service signed by chief of department, chief of staff, or chair of credentialing committee
  • Show documentation demonstrating completion of at least 30 hours of continuing medical education (CME) in anesthesiology earned within two years of the date of application
  • Submit 25 anesthesia case reports

Complete eligibility and application requirements for becoming board certified through the BCA can be found here. The initial board certification process in anesthesiology also requires the successful completion of a written and oral examination. After the eight-year certification period expires, a Diplomate may re-certify by submitting a re-certification application, completing a re-certifying exam, and showing documentation that he or she has completed the required number of CME hours.

Why recruit just any anesthesiologist when you can hire one that is an ABPS Diplomate? The ABPS has been a recognized choice for physician board certification since 1960. Contact us today to learn how to list a job opening on the ABPS Career Center.

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.

On October 18, 2007, President George W. Bush released Homeland Security Presidential Directive 21 (HSPD-21), calling on our nation, among other initiatives, to “collectively support and facilitate the establishment of a discipline of disaster health”. It is a great testament to the wisdom and foresight of the American Board of Physician Specialties that it immediately set to work and created, within the short span of only one year, an educational blueprint and set of certification examinations, both written and oral, for a new subspecialty of disaster medicine—and it is why I chose to be part this vital initiative and this wonderful organization. This is but one of the many innovative programs initiated by the American Board of Physician Specialties over the years, and why I am proud to support its work on behalf of our nation’s public health.

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.
