The American Board of Integrative Medicine Welcomes the Inaugural Class of Diplomates

Integrative Medicine DiplomatesThe 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.

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.
