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

ABPS gives its members unique opportunities to learn and develop professionally. I have been practicing Emergency Medicine for over 27 years and have been privileged to be a member of this fabulous organization. Through ABPS I have developed tremendously in my professional career becoming a consummate practitioner of my trade, a physician leader locally at my hospital, in my region , at the state level, and a published clinical researcher.

ABPS provides a guarantee of a high level of competency. Not only has this been good for my professional development but it has assured my patients that the clinicians they see are trained to the highest degree.

I value my ABPS certification very highly because it is one-of-a-kind certification in Urgent Care Medicine under the auspices of a larger, reputable organization. I really enjoy the professional and personal relationships I have formed with other individuals in the development of this new board and appreciate the great lengths that ABPS goes to ensure and enhance the recognition of it's component boards.
