Osteopathic and allopathic physicians from the United States and Canada are eligible to apply for family practice board certification. Certification through the ABPS demonstrates that successful candidates are qualified medical specialists in family practice. It also confirms a physician’s commitment to the ABPS Medical Code of Ethics.
