A panel commissioned by the American Board of Medical Specialties to review the continuing certification process recently released a report on its findings and recommendations. The ABMS Board of Directors plans to develop a framework for addressing and operationalizing the recommendations. “As a community, we are committed to working with our stakeholders to improve the continuing certification process so that it becomes a system that demonstrates the profession’s commitment to professional self-regulation, offers a consistent and clear understanding of what continuing certification means, and establishes a meaningful and relevant program that brings value to a physician’s practice and meets the highest standard of quality patient care,” ABMS said. AHA is an associate member of ABMS.
