Radiologists Have a Choice in Board Certification

Radiologist Board CertificationAt the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS), we offer board certification and recertification for qualified, licensed radiologists who can demonstrate their mastery of their specialty. As the third largest physician multi-specialty certifying body in America, we have Diplomates in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, which speaks to the network of exceptional physicians we have operating in the medical community. When you are considering pursuing board certification in radiology, it is important to understand that you have a choice. With the ABPS, you’ll have an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and experience in radiology without industry politics and needless hurdles getting in your way.

ABPS takes pride in having stringent, but fair, eligibility requirements for licensed radiologists. In order to be eligible for board certification in diagnostic radiology through the ABPS, we require:

  • The completion of an ACGME or AOA-accredited post-graduate year one program or internship
  • The completion of an accredited residency in diagnostic radiology
  • Conformity with the ABPS Code of Ethics
  • An unrestricted license to practice medicine in your state
  • Three current, original letters of recommendation from colleagues

Recertification, on the other hand, has its own requirements that prioritize a commitment to continuing medical education (CME) in the years since you first obtained board certification, the successful completion of an ABPS-approved ethics class, and other similar requirements.

If you are interested in becoming board certified in radiology, or the time has come to start thinking about recertifying, it is important to know that you do have viable options. At the ABPS, we have developed a rigorous but reasonable opportunity for qualified physicians to earn the recognition they deserve. In addition radiologists who are board certified by the ABMS or AOA are eligible to recertify with ABPS upon successful completion of the eligibility requirements determined by our specialty board.

The ABPS is the official board certifying body of the American Association of Physician Specialists, Inc.

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.
