Are You an MD or DO Who Wishes You Had a Voice in Your Board Certification?

Board Certification Voice ABPSIf you are an MD or DO who wishes that you had more of a voice in your board certification, it’s important to understand that you do have options. In fact, when it comes to national multi-specialty physician certifying groups, there are three primary organizations to choose from: The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA. Choosing which organization to pursue board certification or recertification from is a significant decision, and you owe it to yourself to fully explore the unique benefits that each group can offer you.

At the ABPS, for example, we have developed a strong reputation for our personal commitment to our Diplomates. When you earn board certification from one of our many member boards, you become part of a community of like-minded individuals who are singularly committed to providing the highest standard of patient care. We offer our Diplomates the opportunity to pursue leadership positions within their areas of expertise, while also giving a voice to the overall community through our ongoing commitment to communicating with legislators, physician certifying organizations, hospital groups, and other stakeholders. Additionally, the ABPS provides opportunities for physicians to share best practices, research, and lessons with their peers, improving the overall standard of care in the process.

If you are interested in pursuing board certification from a highly regarded, multi-specialty physician certifying organization, contact the ABPS today. We will be more than happy to explain the advantages of partnering with our organization and walk you through the eligibility requirements of the member board that oversees your specialty. Our Diplomates practice medicine in all 50 states as well as Puerto Rico, Washington, D.C., and Canada. Also, as a reminder, current Diplomates of the ABMS and AOA are fully eligible to re-certify with ABPS. The ABPS is the official board certifying body of the American Association of Physician Specialists, Inc.®

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.

ABPS gives its members unique opportunities to learn and develop professionally. I have been practicing Emergency Medicine for over 27 years and have been privileged to be a member of this fabulous organization. Through ABPS I have developed tremendously in my professional career becoming a consummate practitioner of my trade, a physician leader locally at my hospital, in my region , at the state level, and a published clinical researcher.

ABPS provides a guarantee of a high level of competency. Not only has this been good for my professional development but it has assured my patients that the clinicians they see are trained to the highest degree.

I value my ABPS certification very highly because it is one-of-a-kind certification in Urgent Care Medicine under the auspices of a larger, reputable organization. I really enjoy the professional and personal relationships I have formed with other individuals in the development of this new board and appreciate the great lengths that ABPS goes to ensure and enhance the recognition of it's component boards.
