Supporting Your Organization in Providing Quality Health Care

Everyone deserves the best health care possible. Like you, ABMS is focused on improving the health of patients and how care is delivered.

We believe the best care is provided by physicians who are ABMS Member Board certified. Participation by physicians and specialists in an ABMS Member Board certification program has a positive impact on patient care, improves outcomes, and serves as an important tool for patients, health care organizations, and physicians.

How Certification Benefits Health Systems

Physicians and specialists who achieve ABMS Member Board certification and meet the requirements for continuing certification contribute to an environment of professionalism and a culture of employee retention. Having ABMS board certified physicians and specialists on your staff or as members helps distinguish your organization from others. It demonstrates to consumers that your organization attracts only the most skilled and experienced health care professionals.


Helping You Build Your Workforce

The higher standards of ABMS Member Boards’ certification programs verify that an individual is always learning, researching, and transforming to enhance the care they provide.

ABMS board certification helps in making informed decisions to:

  • Identify potential new hires that already possess your required expertise
  • Promote your capabilities by employing board certified health care professionals
  • Enhance services provided from both a quality and financial perspective
  • Maintain a more productive provider asset
  • Ensure ongoing professional development and proficiency of employees or members
  • Motivate physicians and specialists to expand their knowledge and skills
