Board Certification is a valuable way that physicians can demonstrate their commitment to the highest quality care. Board Certification sets the physician apart as a recognized specialist in the eyes of patients, hospitals, employers, and insurers.

Board Certification is a voluntary process. It is different and distinct from licensure to practice medicine, a function regulated by state government. A valid medical license is required to be Board Certified, but certification is not necessary for licensure.

A Board Certified physician has met certain standards and passed tests that are developed to assure the public that he or she has been adequately trained in a given specialty.
