Board Certification

To become board certified in a specialty, physicians must complete an approved educational program through the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). They also go through an evaluation process which includes a test designed to measure the knowledge, skills and experience of the physician in that specialty.

In addition to getting certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties (which has 24 medical specialty boards), D.O.s can also get certified by one of the 18 American Osteopathic Association Approved Specialty Boards.  Certification by an AOA Approved Board is not a requirement to practice in a medical specialty.
