Reminder: Physicians Have a Choice in Recertification

Recertification ChoicesIf you are a board certified physician and the time has come to start thinking about recertifying, it is important to remember that you have options. The American Board of Physician Specialties is the nation’s third largest nationally recognized physician multi-specialty certifying body, and we have been pleased to provide board certification to qualified physicians since our organization first started granting certifications in 1960. Current Diplomates of ABMS and AOA member boards are eligible to recertify with ABPS.

Our member-friendly organization works hard to give our Diplomates the opportunity to have their voices heard, and we are eager to speak with board certified physicians about the benefits of recertifying with one of our many member boards.

The ABPS is well regarded in the industry and has Diplomates in all 50 states, as well as in Canada and Puerto Rico. When you are recertified with our organization, you’ll be part of a national network of highly motivated and talented physicians who are leaders in their specialties. Board certification through the ABPS also:

  • Affords unlimited board certification verification, attestation, and public confirmation
  • Allows the use of the ABPS certification mark
  • Allows for participation in member board development and governance
  • Provides career networking opportunities
  • Offers membership in a specialty Academy of Medicine

Above all else, a physician who earns board certification or recertification through the ABPS is part of an organization that emphasizes patient care over the business of medicine, shares best practices and experiences, and actively advocates for their specialties.

To learn more about the many advantages of recertifying your board certification with the American Board of Physician Specialties, contact us today. We will gladly provide you with more information about our application process and eligibility requirements, explain the benefits of our various member boards, and answer any questions that you might have.

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.
