Celebrate National Doctors Day 2017

National Doctors Day 2017The American Board of Physician Specialties® joins the American public in recognizing and celebrating physicians this March 30th for National Doctors Day. This day of celebration is meant to serve as a small reminder to men, women and children everywhere of the integral role that physicians serve in each and every one of our lives.

On March 30th, 1842, modern medicine changed forever with the first documented use of general anesthesia in surgery, and starting in 1991, President George H.W. Bush officially recognized this anniversary by declaring National Doctors day as a national day of celebration. Since then, we have used this anniversary as an official opportunity to pause and say thank you to the physicians who help to treat your injuries and illnesses, deliver our babies, and help us be as healthy as we possibly can be.

At the ABPS, we strongly encourage the American public to take a minute out of their day on March 30th, 2017, to let their family physicians and other specialists know that their hard work, selfless dedication, and personal commitment to our American healthcare system is not only recognized but appreciated in the strongest terms.

As the third leading multi-disciplinary physician certifying organization in North America, we are proud to have a community of physician Diplomates who are working diligently to help evolve and improve the healthcare system as a whole. To learn more about the qualifications of our Diplomates, the eligibility requirements of our Member Boards and the advantages to becoming board certified through one of our Member Boards, contact us today. The ABPS is the official certifying organization of the American Association of Physician Specialists®.

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.
