*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.
**The Board reserves the right to change any information, including dates, exam format, fees, policies, procedures, and requirements, without prior notice or issuance of a revised publication. It is the applicant’s responsibility to seek the most current information. The most current information supersedes all previously published information.
