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.

“As a leader in physician board certification, we felt it important to ensure seamless access to pertinent information for our physicians, hospitals and healthcare management professionals,” stated Jeff Morris JD, CEO of ABPS. “Our hope is to continue to raise the standards of physician board certification so that we can better respond to the needs of 21st century medicine.”

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.

We made the site easier to browse and read on both smartphones and tablets, which was a primary objective when reinventing the site architecture.

BCEM certification through ABPS has provided me with many opportunities. It has helped me demonstrate that I have special experience and expertise in Emergency Medicine beyond that obtained through my family medicine training. BCEM certification firmly established me as an emergency medicine specialist once I started working in emergency medicine full time. ABPS has also helped me network with other family physicians with a passion for improving rural and underserved emergency medicine practice.

Personal challenge and motivation compelled me to pass my ABPS board exam. Measurement and confirmation of my own knowledge base reinforced my self-confidence. The ABPS, with its history of inclusivity, has allowed me to have a voice in the organization, while permitting me to impact overall national patient safety and care through certification. Participation in exam development afforded me the opportunity to witness the rigorousness of the exam process and psychometrically sound product, while developing meaningful collegiality, professional life enrichment, and warding off burn out.
