Tampa, FL –The American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) is pleased to announce the recent launch of its new, user friendly and fully responsive website ( for stakeholders in the physician board certification marketplace.

The comprehensive mobile friendly website, developed by Socius Marketing, will ensure that ABPS achieves its core business initiatives while serving its users. It will also represent the ABPS brand image accurately and effectively.

Some of the features of the new site include:
• Easy navigation – Doctors, patients, medical staff professionals and healthcare organizations can find the information they need effortlessly.
• Carefully crafted page layouts and site architecture – This allows for a clean and easy user experience despite the broad scope of services and users that need to be accommodated.
• Mobile responsiveness – All information is readily available and easy to access on mobile devices.
• A pleasant browsing experience – Journey-formatted layouts and visuals on the primary pages create a comfortable pace for users browsing the site.

In this time of uncertainty, Disaster Medicine Certification has helped tremendously to demonstrate to hospital leadership my commitment to disaster preparedness and knowledge of planning, response, and mitigation. ABODM certification focuses on the knowledge and skills a physician needs to become a recognized leader in the four stages of disaster preparation and management: planning, coordination, execution, and debriefing.
