Radiation Oncology

The Board of Certification in Radiation Oncology has postponed the acceptance of new applications for the Initial Certification Exam.   Please click here for more information.

 

The ABPS’s radiation oncology board certification exams enable successful candidates to present themselves to the public as qualified medical specialists in radiation oncology. Completing the radiation oncology board certification exams indicates mastery of radiation oncology experience and knowledge, as well as a professional commitment to adhere to the ABPS Medical Code of Ethics.

The radiation oncology board certification examination process consists of written and oral exams.

The format of the written exam is multiple-choice, single-response questions. The questions are developed and validated by Diplomates of the Board of Certification in Radiology (BCR) under the direction of the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS) and psychometric consultants.

If a candidate is successful in passing the written portion of the radiation oncology board certification exam, the candidate will advance to the oral exam at the next testing administration.

The oral exam of the Radiation Oncology board certification exams is comprised of two (2) clinical and one (1) physics case presentations in which the candidate describes his/her approach to managing a case presented by an examiner. Trained examiners who are board certified in radiation oncology conduct the oral exam.

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.
