ABPS Urgent Care Board Certification
Many urgent care clinics advertise the board certification of their physicians, but are they board certified in urgent care? Probably not. Urgent care certification from the American Board of Physician Specialists provides physicians the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of the skills and level of expertise that are unique to the growing and evolving field of urgent care. Physicians who are board certified through the Board of Certification in Urgent Care Medicine (BCUCM) are uniquely positioned to provide patients with reassurance that their physician has mastered the core competencies required to practice urgent care medicine at the highest level.
Here are a few other particulars about urgent care certification through the BCUCM:
- Exams are developed following the most rigorous policies and standards and are vetted with industry-recognized psychometric criteria.
- ABPS is the only multi-specialty certifying body offering this kind of certification and recertification.
- ABPS has 50-plus years of experience offering physician board certification and recertification.
In general, allopathic and osteopathic physicians in the United States and Canada who are residency-trained and practicing full-time urgent care are eligible to apply for urgent care board certification through the BCUCM.
