Core Values

The American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation's core values provide a solid foundation for our specialty and subspecialty certification programs. We are committed to these eight fundamentals that reflect and uphold our mission:

  • Dedication to excellence
  • Public assurance of high quality patient care
  • Standard setting
  • Science-based medicine
  • Professionalism
  • Leadership
  • Accountability
  • Autonomy


*Certification is a voluntary process by which the ABPMR grants recognition to a physician specialist who has met predetermined qualifications specified by the ABPMR. Many qualities are necessary to be a competent physician, and many of these qualities cannot be quantified or measured. Thus, certification is not a guarantee of the competence of the physician specialist.
