Time Limits Set on Board Certification

To prevent physicians’ unlimited use of the term “board-eligible,” all member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties will limit the amount of time that physicians have to undergo board certification after completing their residencies.  Most of the time limits for the 24 boards range between five and seven years.

Some of the member boards already have certification time limits in place. The rest of the member boards will complete a transition to time limits by January 1, 2019.
