No Longer Board-Eligible? Check Out the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS)
Across the United States, many talented physicians are at risk of losing the chance to become certified because they have not yet passed their board certification exams. If these physicians fail to earn certification by the end of their eligibility period, they are no longer considered board-eligible and must complete a year of residency retraining or a fellowship program in order to re-establish eligibility. At the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we want physicians who are no longer board-eligible to know that there is another option.
The ABPS offers qualified physicians board certification in numerous specialties. The ABPS is nationally recognized as a prestigious choice for multi-specialty certification, with Diplomates practicing in all 50 states, as well as Canada and Puerto Rico. While our eligibility requirements and testing standards are as stringent as any board certifying body in the world, we are unique among them. Founded in 1952, the ABPS certifies both allopathic and osteopathic physicians. This spirit of inclusion filled a void at a time when certifying organizations discriminated on the basis of training. We promote collegiality, fraternity, and service among our Diplomates and proudly maintain a non-discriminatory approach.
