Physicians Wanting a Voice in Board Certification Choose ABPS

Physicians Voice ABPSAt the American Board of Physician Specialties®, we offer a choice to physicians who want their voices to be heard. We are the nation’s third largest physician certifying body, and we have Diplomates in all 50 states, as well as Puerto Rico and Canada, which means our network of physicians is robust, diverse, and highly qualified. When you earn board certification from the ABPS, you’ll be a member of a like-minded community who shares your passion and enthusiasm for patient care and is committed to working together to improve the North American healthcare system.

Make no mistake, earning board certification from one of the 18 specialty boards at the ABPS is a rigorous process. We believe that board certification should be reserved for physicians who can demonstrate mastery of their specialties, and our eligibility requirements are designed to ensure that the very best physicians earn this coveted designation. Yet, one of the clear benefits of board certification is that the large group of physicians who have successfully completed this process are unified by a shared enthusiasm for their specialty and have the opportunity to work together – and attain leadership positions in the industry – to ensure that patient care always predominates over the business side of medicine. We also work hard to hear the individual voices of each of our members and are committed to sharing best practices, successes, and bold ideas with the members at large to help our community learn from the unique experiences of others.

In addition to fostering healthy internal communication among our Diplomates, the ABPS is also a strong advocate in the community for our board certified physicians. We tirelessly work to establish relationships with healthcare organizations, hospital groups, legislators, and other stakeholders to ensure that core beliefs of our community are heard. It’s just another reason why physicians who want their voices to be heard continue to turn to the American Board of Physician Specialties.

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.
