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 value my ABPS certification very highly because it is one-of-a-kind certification in Urgent Care Medicine under the auspices of a larger, reputable organization. I really enjoy the professional and personal relationships I have formed with other individuals in the development of this new board and appreciate the great lengths that ABPS goes to ensure and enhance the recognition of it's component boards.

ABPS gives its members unique opportunities to learn and develop professionally. I have been practicing Emergency Medicine for over 27 years and have been privileged to be a member of this fabulous organization. Through ABPS I have developed tremendously in my professional career becoming a consummate practitioner of my trade, a physician leader locally at my hospital, in my region , at the state level, and a published clinical researcher.
