The American Board of Integrative Medicine Welcomes the Inaugural Class of Diplomates
The American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABOIM), one of the newest member boards of the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS), is pleased to welcome and congratulate our inaugural class of Diplomates. This group of highly motivated physicians has successfully completed our rigorous board examination process in integrative medicine, and are today recognized as proven leaders in this emerging specialty.
Integrative medicine is a medical specialty that combines the best practices of conventional medicine with complementary and alternative techniques. When possible, integrative medicine prioritizes non-invasive techniques and takes a holistic approach to treatment, placing an emphasis on all the factors that influence a person’s overall wellness. Physicians who specialize in integrative medicine also work hard to develop a close relationship with their patients, allowing them to better diagnose and treat them. This patient-centric approach has understandably become extremely popular across North America, and is just one of the reasons that integrative medicine physicians are in such high demand.
Our inaugural class of Diplomates represents physicians who understand the immeasurable advantages to integrative medicine and who have formally demonstrated their mastery of knowledge and extensive experience in their area of expertise. By earning board certification through the ABOIM, they can now present themselves as leaders in the field who are capable of providing the best possible care to their patients.
For more information about the ABOIM, our rigorous eligibly requirements, and our application process, contact the ABPS today. Members of the public who are interested in learning if their physician is board certified through ABPS are also encouraged to visit our online certification confirmation system here.
