Healthcare Leaders Can Learn About the ABPS in 2020

Healthcare Leaders Can Learn About the ABPS in 2020Founded in 1952, the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) offers both allopathic and osteopathic physicians board certification and recertification in 18 different specialties. We certified our first physician in 1960, and since then have certified numerous professionals in traditional medical fields such as internal medicine, family medicine, and dermatology, as well as in emerging specialties such as urgent care medicine and integrative medicine. In fact, we are the only multispecialty board that offers certification in these fields.

Recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a choice for physician board certification, we maintain a notably rigorous certification process. Candidates must meet stringent eligibility requirements and successfully complete comprehensive specialty exams. It’s no surprise that only the most talented and dedicated professionals become ABPs Diplomates. Our Diplomates practice at some of the most respectable health care institutions in the country, and are in all 50 states, the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico, and Canada.

At the ABPS, we have remained steadfast in our mission to offer the highest standards in physician board certification that meets the healthcare needs of the public, while helping physicians achieve success in the evolving medical environment. The ABPS encourages healthcare leaders to visit our booth at any of the following events in 2020 to learn more about our certification options:

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.
