Medical Board Certification and Physician Recertification from ABPS

Board Certification PhysicianPhysician board certification and recertification through the American Board of Physician Specialties provides proof that a physician has mastered the core competencies required to practice a particular specialty or sub-specialty. The ABPS is the official certifying body of the American Association of Physician Specialists, Inc. which has been providing the highest level of physician certification for more than 50 years.

ABPS Diplomates practice in every state as well as in Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and Canada. What is involved for a physician to achieve board certification through the ABPS? The requirements are stringent, but fair. Our clinically-based written, oral and patient simulation exams are developed using only the most rigorous standards for measuring the knowledge base and skill set required to provide the absolute best patient care available.

As a board certified ABPS physician, you become a member of a distinguished community of physicians who prioritize the advancement of patient care and safety, rather than the business of medicine. Clinical experiences and best practices are shared among community members, enabling you to learn from the setbacks and the success of physicians. Every ABPS Diplomate has access to abundant leadership opportunities, and is a valued community member whose voice is heard and respected.

ABPS gives its members unique opportunities to learn and develop professionally. I have been practicing Emergency Medicine for over 27 years and have been privileged to be a member of this fabulous organization. Through ABPS I have developed tremendously in my professional career becoming a consummate practitioner of my trade, a physician leader locally at my hospital, in my region , at the state level, and a published clinical researcher.

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.
