The American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) Offers an Option for Physician Recertification in Diagnostic Radiology

ABPS Offers Recertification in Diagnostic RadiologyThe 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.

If you would like to learn more about the BCR recertification process, contact the ABPS. We will be glad to provide you with detailed information about the eligibility requirements for recertification.

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 feel truly blessed and grateful to be an internal medicine board-certified diplomate with the American Board of Physician Specialties. Their ongoing, steadfast commitment to physician board(s) enhancement, forward focused vision, and tenacity is second to none. ABPS has become a recognized choice in Physician Board Certification.

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.
