Credentialers: Are Any of Your Staff Physicians Certified by the American Board of Physician Specialties?

Credentialers Physician Certification ABPSAt the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we offer a helpful online tool that can be an invaluable resource to credentialers. Our ABPS Online Verification Database is available to healthcare and credentialing organizations that are interested in confirming the credentials of physicians. Through this system, you have access to the physician’s specialty, certificate number, and expiration date, and our database can be used for credentialing and professional purposes making it a highly convenient option. Primary Source-verified information is also typically included for most physicians.

For your convenience, our Online Verification Database can be found here.

After you set up your account, you may login to the database and search the system for a particular physician. Our system allows for partial and complete match searches using:

  • Last name
  • First name
  • Date of birth
  • UPIN

Once you have completed the search, you’ll have access to limited information to confirm you have the right physician, with complete records available for purchase.

Having the ability to confirm the credentials of a physician is absolutely essential and credentialing organizations are strongly encouraged to utilize our Online Verification Database to confirm the qualifications of our physician Diplomates.

Alternatively, members of the public who are interested in determining whether a physician is board certified are invited to use our Public Confirmation Database. This is an entirely free service that is available here.

To learn more about how to use the ABPS Online Verification Database or for additional information about how ABPS can work alongside credentialers to confirm the qualifications of our Diplomates, contact us today. The ABPS is the official certifying organization of the American Association of Physician Specialists®.

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.
