The American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) Offers an Option for Physician Recertification in Diagnostic Radiology
The Board of Certification in Radiology (BCR) gives qualified physicians the opportunity to validate their hard-earned knowledge and expertise in diagnostic radiology through physician board certification. The BCR is a Member Board of the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), which has long maintained a non-discriminatory approach to board certification. The ABPS, therefore, invites Diplomates of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) to apply for recertification with the BCR.
A nationally recognized board in diagnostic radiology, the BCR has been certifying physicians since 1986. Today, BCR Diplomates practice their specialty at some of the most respected medical facilities across the country.
To become recertified with the BCR, Diplomates of the ABMS and AOA must provide documentation of their certification, which must be current or no more than two years past the expiration date. Candidates may apply for recertification as early as two years before their certification expires.
The BCR recertification process includes continuing medical education (CME), work experience, and rigorous testing that expands physicians’ skills and knowledge while allowing them to maintain their distinction as leaders in diagnostic radiology. Additionally, BCR-certified physicians are members of a community of diverse but like-minded professionals who prioritize patient care over the business of medicine and exchange information about clinical experiences to advance their specialty and patient care in general. Given our outstanding reputation with hospitals and other employers and our stellar work record with credentialing authorities and hospital leaders, it’s little wonder that BCR recertification also makes physicians more marketable to employers and increases their opportunities for career advancement.
