The ABPS Welcomes Physicians Who Seek Board Certification or Recertification

Physicians Board CertificationPhysicians who seek and complete board certification or recertification will find a willing, reputable, and capable partner in the  American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS).  The certification provided by our Member Boards is based on rigorous scientific standards and innovative examination techniques that prove your professional competency. Physician certification through the ABPS is not merely proof that you can pass an exam. It is a demonstration that you are among the elite in your chosen specialty or subspecialty.

That said, physicians who achieve board certification through an ABPS Member Board have much more than a framed certificate to show for it. When you earn board certification through the ABPS, you become a member of a distinguished community of like-minded physicians who prioritize the advancement of patient care and safety, rather than things like reimbursement and coding. ABPS Diplomates are staunch advocates in favor of the concept that patient care always supersedes the business side of medicine. In order to strengthen that cause, the ABPS community of board certified physicians takes a “big tent” approach to medicine that provides opportunities for all Diplomates to share in the advocacy of improved patient care. Every ABPS Diplomate is a valued member of a community whose voice is heard and respected. Best practices are shared with the ABPS community at large, giving Diplomates the opportunity to learn from the successes of others.

Physicians with board certification from an ABPS Member Board also are encouraged to proactively reach out to healthcare organizations, hospitals, legislators, and the communities where members practice in order to reinforce the importance of placing patients first. In that respect, the ABPS community’s strength and unity enable our Diplomates to make their voices heard in the public arena, thereby helping shape the future of healthcare in North America.

The ABPS is the certifying body for the American Association of Physician Specialists, providing board certification for 17 medical specialties and subspecialties. Contact the ABPS to learn more about our certification and recertification process.

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.
