What Is Board Certification?

While all doctors must be licensed to practice medicine in the state where they work, they can also go one step further and apply for board certification. Board certification is granted to physicians who have achieved a higher level of experience and expertise in a specific area of medicine. They generally must take an additional exam and complete specific education requirements in order to obtain this credential. 

How Does a Physician Become Board Certified?

Board certification is granted by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). A doctor may become certified in 40 specialties or 89 subspecialties, each represented by one of 24 boards. Each board has its own requirements in order to become certified and to maintain certification. It is imperative to understand your rights and responsibilities regarding your certification. 

What to Do If Your Board Certification Is in Jeopardy

In some cases, your board certification may be at risk of being suspended or revoked. If allegations are launched against you, the board may begin an investigation to determine whether your board certification should be removed. In most instances, you have the right to an attorney. It is important to exercise that right and to comply with all requirements throughout the process.

Board certification may be suspended or revoked for several reasons, including unethical conduct, violation of a rule or law, substance abuse, and more. If you receive notification of a potential revocation or suspension of your certification, you need to speak with an attorney. At the Callahan Law Firm, our attorneys have successfully litigated adverse proceedings brought against our clients by numerous boards and are well-prepared to assist you with your needs.
