Are You Ready to Become a Board Certified Physician?

Board Certified PhysicianIf you are about to complete your residency and have been considering the next step for your medical career, you might be ready to become a board certified physician in your chosen specialty. Or, if you are a long-time practitioner and have been wondering about career advancement, you might wish to consider seeking board certification in a new specialty. Either way, no matter if you are just starting out or have already built a long, rewarding career, the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) can help.

The value of physician board certification is all too obvious to most medical students early on in the educational journey. Even the earliest undergraduate student with an eye on a long, gratifying, and successful career ahead understands that becoming a board certified physician demonstrates to potential employers and patients that the physician has achieved a mastery of the core body of knowledge and skills necessary to provide the best possible care. Similarly, a physician who has spent decades working in a hospital emergency department might wish to seek board certification in Emergency Medicine or Hospital Medicine to set themselves apart from the field. Or, if he or she seeks a less-intense work setting at one of the many urgent care clinics that have sprung up nationwide, one option available only from the ABPS is Urgent Care certification.

Why become a board certified physician through the ABPS? Because, in addition to the benefits mentioned above, a physician might also want to be part of a diverse, eminent community of his or her peers whose priority is the advancement of patient care and safety. In addition, every ABPS Diplomate has access to many leadership opportunities within the organization, and every voice is heard and valued.

If you are ready to take the next step toward physician board certification in your chosen specialty, contact the ABPS today.

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.
