ABPS Mission: Medical Certification that Focuses on Patient Centered Care, Not Only the Business of Medicine

ABPS MissionWhether interested in disaster medicine, emergency board certification, family medicine, hospital medicine, urgent care certification, be assured the ABPS examination process will fairly and accurately measure your skill and knowledge of the core competencies required to provide the absolute best patient care available. ABPS acknowledges that experience counts, and the reason for rigorous eligibility requirements which includes advanced training and significant time spent practicing in your chosen field. ABPS content development process was independently vetted by renowned testing agency, Castle Worldwide, which concluded that ABPS physician board certification examinations “meet or exceed the equivalent standards of any other certification organization, including other health-related organizations.”

Most importantly, the ABPS never deviates from its commitment to keep the attention of the medical community focused toward the ongoing improvement of patient care, rather than the business of medicine. ABPS is the only board certification body that requires non-remedial medical ethics training as part of the recertification process, and strive to bring compassion back to the forefront of patient care. There is no greater commitment we can make, and  invite qualified physicians throughout the U.S. and Canada to join ABPS in this obligation.

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 value my ABPS certification very highly because it is one-of-a-kind certification in Urgent Care Medicine under the auspices of a larger, reputable organization. I really enjoy the professional and personal relationships I have formed with other individuals in the development of this new board and appreciate the great lengths that ABPS goes to ensure and enhance the recognition of it's component boards.
