Important Credentialing Information for Hospitals and Health Care Groups

ABPSIn recent years, hospitals throughout the country have focused on hiring board-certified physicians. At the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we welcome the practice. Founded in 1952, we certified our first physician in 1960, and since then, have certified countless physicians in a variety of specialties. Our certification process is notably stringent, and only the most dedicated and talented physicians earn certification or recertification with one of our 20 Member Boards. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor has recognized the ABPS as a premier choice for physician board certification.

But how can you be certain that a physician being considered for an open position is indeed ABPS certified?  By partnering with Aperture Credentialing, LLC, the nation’s largest and most experienced healthcare provider credentialing company, we offer an online database that makes the verification process simple and straightforward. Our database gives hospitals and healthcare organizations access to an ABPS physician’s specialty or specialties, certificate number, and expiration date. Additionally, our database contains primary source-verified educational information for most of our physicians.

To access the system, click here. You will be asked to create a user account for your organization. Future logins require only a username and password. Once inside the database, you’ll be able to search for physicians using their last name, first name, and UPIN (unique physician identification number). A limited amount of physician information will be available to help you confirm you have found the right physician. Each full profile costs $40 and will be billed to the credit card associated with the user account.

If you have any questions about the ABPS online verification database or would like information about our certification standards, contact us.

If you are having difficulty accessing your account, please call 813-433-2277.

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.
