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.

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.
