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.

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.
