ABPS Urgent Care Board Certification

Urgent Care Board CertificationMany 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.

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.
