- Are all physicians Board Certified?
What is Board Certification?
To be board certified means that a physician has demonstrated mastery of her specialty. After completing an accredited residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology, both written and oral examinations must be taken and passed.
Subspecialty certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility requires fellowship training and completion of additional written and oral exams.
Why is being Board Certified important?
Board certification is a voluntary process, requiring active participation in continuing medical education and completion of a written exam every six years.
This helps a physician maintain and enhance her current knowledge. It provides a physician with information about the current guidelines and recommendations to increase her awareness of important advances in the specialty. This helps a physician improve patient care, as medicine is always changing.
Are all physicians Board Certified?
No, not all physicians are board certified. It is a voluntary and time consuming process. However, more and more insurance companies are requiring that a physician be board certified before credentialing a doctor to see their patients!
