Physicians Deserve a Choice in Board Certification and Recertification

Physician ChoiceAt the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we believe that physicians deserve a choice when it comes to certification and recertification. As the third-largest nationally recognized multi-specialty physician certifying body, we have Diplomates in all 50 states, as well as Canada, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia, who turned to us because they wanted to be recognized by an organization that values their opinion and lets their voices be heard.

While the ABPS may be the youngest of the three primary physician certifying organizations in North America, our eligibility requirements are equally as stringent and our Diplomates are just as highly qualified. We certify physicians who have extensive firsthand experience in their field of medicine, have mastered their specialty, and are eager to be recognized for their expertise by a well respected and established certifying body.

ABPS is not content to rest on its laurels, however. Efforts are ongoing to educate healthcare organizations, hospital groups, physician CEOs, and various industry leaders about the extensive qualifications of our Diplomates. Today, physicians who have received board certification through our organization hold leadership positions throughout North America and our network of physicians is vast, growing, and well respected. We are aggressively working with state legislators across the country to fight unfair medical licensure compacts, partnering with the Veterans Health Administration to end discriminatory hiring practices, and constantly reaching out to hiring organizations to ensure our Diplomates receive the consideration they deserve. We know that our Diplomates had a choice and picked us, and we’re going to do right by them.

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.
