Verifying Board Certifications

Faculty may directly verify their membership in an ABMS Board

However, please not note the following:

  • Being "board eligible" is not the same thing as being board-certified and should never be listed on a formal website biography.
  • Foreign board certifications other than Canada are also prohibited on public websites in the State of California
  • Board certification is separate from medical licensing. Medical licensing is not a part of the faculty biography.

Alternatively, you may determine certifictions using the following procedure
