ABPS Is a Credible Choice in Physician Board Certification
The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), ABPS is a nationally recognized, multi-specialty certifying body that offers board certification to both allopathic and osteopathic physicians in a range of specialties. Certification through the ABPS is a rigorous process, requiring candidates to satisfy several eligibility requirements and pass a comprehensive certification exam. Once certified, physicians must complete several hours of continuing medical education annually. Is it any wonder that only the most dedicated physicians earn ABPS board certification?
Currently, many ABPS Diplomates practice their specialty at some of the nation’s most trusted institutions, and ABPS physicians can be found in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
At the ABPS, we submit these facts as ample proof that we are a leading choice in physician board certification. Major federal agencies agree. The U.S. Department of Labor, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Veterans’ Health Administration, and the United States Armed Forces under the GI Bill, all recognize ABPS certification. So have many state medical boards, such as Florida’s, which recognize the ABPS as a board that meets the higher standards of certification they require.
ABPS Certification Meets the Most Rigorous Industry Standards
If you are a physician researching board certification options, you’ve probably heard a lot about the ABMS and the AOA. In comparing them to the ABPS, you should know that an objective third party, Castle Worldwide, conducted a thorough assessment of our rigorous standards and found that they were equivalent to those set by ABMS and AOA. In short, this means that ABPS examinations, procedures, and protocols not only meet the highest standards possible, but are clinically, psychometrically, and legally defensible.
