Study Compares Board Certification Requirements Among Physician Multi-Specialty Organizations

An independent study performed by The Associated Industries of Florida Service Corporation (AIFSC) has compared multi-specialty board requirements for both certification and re-certification. The study shows that the requirements of the three national certification organizations are generally equivalent.

The groups included in the comparison are: the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS), and the American Osteopathic Association's Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists (AOABOS).

Interesting study! I wonder how many other nations have three leading physician certification organizations interested in protecting the safety and well-being of patients?
