In Need of Physician Board Certification? Check out the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS)

If you recently completed residency training or are an established physician in practice and interested in distinguishing yourself through board certification, consider applying to the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS). As a multi-specialty physician certifying body that includes 12 Member Boards with Diplomates in 20 specialties, the ABPS has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a leading choice for physician board certification. Of the nation’s three multi-specialty certifying entities, we may be the smallest, but our size allows us to be much more responsive to the needs of physicians in health care today. Currently, ABPS Diplomates across the various medical specialties practice at some of the finest healthcare institutions in the nation and are in all 50 states, the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico, and Canada.

Why Seek ABPS Physician Certification?

Founded in 1952, we take a pragmatic and nondiscriminatory approach to certification. We certify both allopathic and osteopathic physicians and promote collegiality, fraternity, and service among our Diplomates. We have certified numerous qualified physicians in traditional medical fields such as dermatology, family medicine, and internal medicine as well as in innovative specialties like disaster medicine, integrative medicine, and family medicine obstetrics. In fact, we are the only multi-specialty board that offers integrative medicine certification.

When you earn ABPS board certification, you become part of a diverse group of like-minded professionals who are respected throughout the healthcare industry. As an ABPS Diplomate, you can expect us to be your tireless advocate, working with legislators and other decision-makers to ensure that our community is well represented.

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.
