Board of Certification in Diagnostic Radiology
The ABPS’s diagnostic radiology board certification exams enable successful candidates to present themselves to the public as qualified medical specialists in diagnostic radiology. Completing the diagnostic radiology board certification exams indicates mastery of diagnostic radiology experience and knowledge, as well as a professional commitment to adhere to the ABPS Medical Code of Ethics.
The initial board certification in Diagnostic Radiology requires successful completion of both a written and an oral examination, in addition to the application requirements. Once granted, all ABPS certificates are good for a period of eight years, expiring on December 31st of the eighth year.
Recertification in diagnostic radiology requires documentation of the required number of Continuing Medical Education (CME) hours, completion of the recertification application, and successful completion of the written recertification examination.
