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.

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.
