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.

In this time of uncertainty, Disaster Medicine Certification has helped tremendously to demonstrate to hospital leadership my commitment to disaster preparedness and knowledge of planning, response, and mitigation. ABODM certification focuses on the knowledge and skills a physician needs to become a recognized leader in the four stages of disaster preparation and management: planning, coordination, execution, and debriefing.

ABPS board certification validates a physician's competence in their medical specialty. This is important to a patient seeking medical care. Physician recertification through ABPS assures that we maintain knowledge and expertise throughout our career. The ABPS is a collegial and committed organization of physicians and administrative staff. The organization has given me the opportunity to become involved in all facets of the board certification process and physician governance.
