Is your doctor certified?
When you need to put your health into a professional’s hands, you want to be confident in your physician’s evaluation, advice, and treatment plan. One of the best ways to be assured you’re getting good care is to choose a doctor who is board certified.
For Our Diplomates
Making Continuing Certification Matter
The ABPMR Continuing Certification (CC) Program helps you keep your knowledge current, your practice improving, and your clinical skills sharp throughout your career — but it’s not really about you. It’s about your patients. When applied to your practice effectively, CC helps you continue raising the bar of excellence in patient care.
Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits are the backbone of the CC Program. By completing about 40 CME credits a year, including 8 Self-Assessment CME credits, you’re ensuring your clinical knowledge is always current.
Longitudinal assessment is designed to assess knowledge while helping physicians learn and improve over time. Questions may be answered at your own pace and are customizable across five domains.
Quality improvement (QI) projects offer a chance to demonstrate how you’re continually improving for your patients — and to give you the tools to measure and quantify that improvement. (Tip: This requirement may be more straightforward than you think.)
Your Roadmap to Certification
Welcome to the start of your journey to PM&R certification.
Board certification demonstrates your knowledge, skills, and competence to your employer, your peers, and your patients. Once you reach the end of residency, your certification journey begins. The ABPMR is here to give you a roadmap to certification and beyond.
