Online Physician Board Certification Verification

Online Certification VerificationThe American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS) is pleased to provide electronic board certification verification with our online physician board certification verification database. ABPS has partnered with Aperture Credentialing, LLC, the largest and most experienced health care provider credentialing company in the United States, to administer this database. Healthcare organization credentialers can now look forward to the following when credentialing ABPS certified physicians:

  • Convenient online account system to quickly check certification status
  • Instant receipt of their completed Certification Verification Profiles
  • Reliable results associated with the industry’s largest provider credentialing organization

Information about ABPS Board Certified physicians provided by the database includes:

  • Verification of Board Certification
  • Physician specialties
  • Certificate number
  • Expiration date
  • Primary source verified education background (for most physicians)

How does the database work? The first time someone accesses the system, they will be asked to create a user account for his or her organization. Subsequent logins require only a user name and password. The system’s search functionality includes exact and/or partial matches using last name, first name, and UPIN (unique physician identification number). Once it has been confirmed that you have found the physician you are looking for, the Certification Verification Profile may be purchased for $40 per profile. The file may be printed or saved as a PDF.

The ABPS is proud to provide this simplified option for online physician board certification verification. In addition, ABPS Diplomates may receive a copy of their Certification Verification profile upon request. Contact the certification department at 813-433-2277, or send an email to and mention Diplomate Request for Profile.

When I decided to pursue a full time role as a physician executive it was important to me to obtain additional professional training, education and work experience. Board certification through the ABPS in Administrative Medicine is validation of my efforts and a demonstration of dedication to professional development. We need more physicians to become full time health care executives, knowing there is a board certification option in Administrative Medicine encourages physicians to take the leap from full time clinical practice to healthcare organizational leadership.

The American Board of Physician Specialties has provided me with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of internal medicine through board certification. As a hospitalist, board certification is an expected credential, and hospitals recognize the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS) as one of the three standard credentialling bodies for Internal Medicine. Additionally, the ABPS has helped me develop leadership skills as a Board member and Committee Chairperson. ABPS has also helped me sharpen critical thinking skills as a test question developer and reviewer. The Allopathic (MD) and Osteopathic (DO) physicians in the ABPS are lifelong learners and frequently pursue multiple board certifications. I enjoy the camaraderie of my peers in ABPS.

When I think historically, advancement in medicine and patient safety and care has been driven by the diversity of people and scientific thought. That’s what I found at the ABPS and more. For over 60 years that is just who we are. I found a physician certifying body that provides a choice and voice to all physicians ensuring that patients are always placed first.
