What Physician Recruiters Should Know About ABPS Board Certification
Physician recruiters who are not as familiar with the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) as they would like to be should know that the ABPS sets rigorous standards for eligibility and testing. In addition, our allopathic (MD) and osteopathic (DO) physicians always place the concerns of patients first, while abiding by the highest ethical standards.
Our testing standards are as tough as you’ll find in the board certification field, but fair. The ABPS, which is the official certifying body of the American Association of Physician Specialists®, Inc., received independent confirmation of the high standards of ABPS board certification exam content through an exhaustive practice analysis study performed by Castle Worldwide. This leading certification testing company concluded that the ABPS/AAPS certification programs “meet or exceed the equivalent standards of any other certification organization.”
Physician recruiters also can rest assured that any physician who has earned board certification through an ABPS Member Board has proven, through written, oral, or hands-on simulation testing, that he or she has earned the right to be considered an accomplished leader in the medical community. Every physician who becomes board certified through the ABPS has proven that he or she has mastered the core competencies required to provide the absolute finest medical care possible in their chosen specialty. In addition, qualified physicians who achieve board certification through an ABPS Member Board are required to take a non-remedial medical ethics course once every eight years to achieve recertification. The ABPS is the only medical board certification body to require such a course.
