Osteopathic Physicians Have a Choice in Recertification

Osteopathic Physician RecertificationAt the American Board of Physician Specialties®, we remind board certified osteopathic physicians that they have a choice when the time comes to think about recertification. The American Board of Physician Specialties works hard at developing a close relationship with our Diplomates and giving the physicians in our network an opportunity for their voices to be heard. As the nation’s third largest multi-specialty physician certifying body, we are a well known and highly regarded organization with Diplomates in all 50 states as well as Canada and Puerto Rico.

One of the important things to keep in mind when you’re considering recertification is that current Diplomates of the American Osteopathic Association are eligible to recertify with the ABPS. This helps us accommodate the most qualified physicians in the country, many of whom are interested in partnering with a new certifying organization.

Some of the other benefits to pursuing board certification through the ABPS include:

  • We allow for and encourage participation in member board development and governance, helping to ensure we best serve our Diplomates and candidates for certification
  • We offer unlimited board certification verification, attestation, and public confirmation
  • We provide networking opportunities

The American Board of Physician Specialties is an organization that has developed a strong reputation for working hard to meet the unique needs of its Diplomates. If you are an osteopathic physician who is considering recertifying, it is important to understand that you have options, and at the ABPS, we urge you to explore the avenues available to you.

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.
