The National Board of Physicians and Surgeons (NBPAS) is committed to providing certification that ensures physician compliance with national standards and promotes lifelong learning.
The $169 cost covers a two year certification ($84.50/year) including all your specialties. The fee will be adjusted up or down in future years, determined by our expenses. Physicians in or within 2 years of training qualify for a reduced rate of $29 for a two year certification ($14.50/year). We must add $20 to all applications from DOs because the AOA charges a $20 fee per physician for certification verification.
All current ABMS and AOA specialties are offered. To view current specialties offered, click here.
This is a grass roots initiative. We are working hard to gain acceptance by hospitals and payers. We are also relying on physicians like yourself to spread the word amongst colleagues and your hospital medical executive committee.
