The American Board of Medical Specialties (“ABMS”) now publicly reports whether specialists are meeting the continuing education requirements necessary for maintaining board certification. The following member boards are the first boards to report via the ABMS:
- Family Medicine
- Nuclear Medicine
- Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
- Plastic Surgery
Information regarding physicians certified by the above boards can be found at: www.certificationmatters.org. Search results reveal the name of the certifying board, and a “yes” or “no” regarding whether the physician meets the maintenance of certification (“MOC”) requirements for such board.
Maintenance of certification status will be available via the ABMS for the remaining American Board specialties by August 2012.
