Hospital & Healthcare Organization Credentialers Increasingly Look for ABPS Board Certification

Credentialers ABPS At the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we work tirelessly to ensure that our Diplomates get all of the professional opportunities that they deserve. A central component to this relationship is that, in recent years, we have made tremendous progress building lasting relationships with hospitals and other healthcare organization credentialers throughout United States. Today, the ABPS is the third-largest multi-specialty physician certifying organization in the country, and our Diplomates actively practice medicine in all 50 states as well as Canada and Puerto Rico.

To become Board Certified through one of our various Member Boards, aspiring Diplomates must meet a variety of standardized eligibility requirements. While this process can be rigorous, it provides assurance to healthcare organizations that our Diplomates have successfully passed psychometrically, peer-validated examinations, have extensive experience in their area of expertise, and possess a high level of training in their specialty. In short, our Diplomates are leaders in their communities.

One example of the ways that we publicize the qualifications of our Diplomates is by attending major industry conferences across the nation, including the National Association of Medical Staff Services conference. By meeting credentialers and other medical staff face to face, we are able to explain the numerous advantages to employing ABPS Diplomates, helping our physicians pursue new career opportunities and grow in their specialty.

As more healthcare organizations are beginning to require that their physicians be Board Certified, it is extremely important that ABPS Diplomates are viewed on similar criteria as physicians from competing certifying organizations. At the ABPS, we take this seriously and are committed to providing credentialers with the information that they need to make a sound decision when it comes time to recruit physician talent.

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.
