Our Staff

We're Here to Help

We believe in the mission of the ABPMR - and it shows through the quality of our work and our dedication to diplomates.

The ABPMR’s success is thanks to a small but very talented group of staff in Rochester, Minnesota. They support the board by providing operational support for all board activities, including residency tracking, examination management, the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program, information technology, finance and administration, and communication.
