WHAT IS BOARD CERTIFICATION?
Board certification is the process by which an allopathic (MD) or doctor of osteopathy (DO) in the United States documents by written, practical and/or stimulator-based testing a mastery of the basic knowledge and skills that defines an area of medical specialization. There are three agencies/organizations in the US that oversee the certification of MDs and DOs: American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), American Osteopathic Association Bureau of Osteopathic Specialties (AOABS), and American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS). These are separate but equal certifying boards.
In addition to the initial certification process, physicians should maintain certification through an ongoing process of education and assessment to improve practice performance. Dr. Gabriel Chiu is board-certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery by BOTH the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons and the American Board of Physician Specialties.
