American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Call for Physician Remediation Programs
Last Updated: Sep 9, 2021
The Continuing Professional Development and the Physician Remediation communities are invited to submit programs and resources for the ABMS Continuing Certification Directory.
In its ongoing commitment to continuous quality improvement of ABMS Member Boards’ continuing certification programs, the ABMS Remediation Task Force, a collaborative task force comprised of national thought leaders on physician remediation and leaders from the ABMS Member Board community, seeks to:
- Support diplomates’ ability to address a performance or participation deficit prior to a change in certification status
- Offer a collection of remediation resources and programs for the ABMS Member Boards and their diplomates
The Task Force has defined remediation as addressing an “identified deficit” prior to a change in certification status. The Task Force supports the role of the Member Boards in facilitating opportunities for diplomates to learn and improve prior to the loss of certification as well as the role of external stakeholders in providing comprehensive approaches to assess, diagnose, and remediate identified deficits. Additionally, the Task Force seeks programs and resources for both longitudinal assessment programs (LAP) and non-LAP certification programs that effectively serve diplomates and improve the delivery of quality patient care.
