Providing a trusted credential important to patients and relevant to a physician’s practice is the goal of the American Board of Medical Specialties as well as the ABMS Program for Maintenance of Certification. Physicians who have achieved their medical license have only met the minimum requirements to diagnose and treat patients; this is not specialty specific. Very different from medical licensure, Board Certification is a voluntary process and involves a rigorous process. Designed and administered by specialists in the specific area of medicine, the process involves testing and peer evaluations. Being Board Certified shows the ability of a physician to hold an exceptional expertise in a specific specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice. Board Certification also serves as an important credential demonstrating how the specialist provides a higher degree of standard in patient care. To ensure the best care possible, patients should look for these important credentials as they are the best measure of the physician’s knowledge, skills, and experience in providing high-quality health care within a given specialty.
As one of the 24 medical specialty boards that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties, The American Board of Plastic Surgery works with the other 23 specialties to establish common standards for physicians to maintain board certification. The goal of the American Board of Medical Specialties is to protect the public through assessment and certification that doctors meet special education, training, and professional requirements.
