Value of ABEM-Certified Physicians


People in America go to the emergency department, 150 million times each year.

At any given moment in the emergency department, life hangs in the balance. An emergency department may have physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners and others who all play important roles, but like 80% of the public, we believe physicians should lead emergency care.

ABEM Board Certification is the Gold Standard 

Certification by the American Board of Emergency Medicine is viewed as the gold standard for emergency physicians.

It indicates a physician is dedicated to delivering high-quality care and has demonstrated the skills and ongoing expertise needed to meet the highest professional credential in Emergency Medicine. It also signals a physician’s commitment to staying up-to-date with the latest medical advances.
Does board certification matter to the public?

Certification Matters 

Physicians certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine are rightly proud.                             

Others acknowledge it, too. ABEM is the first medical specialty board to be accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, an independent, non-governmental agency that ensures professional certification programs adhere to modern standards of health, welfare and safety.

Who is an Emergency Physician?

A licensed and board-certified emergency physician completes thousands of hours of training, and more than a decade of expert-level education, so that they are prepared in a moment’s notice for any challenge that comes their way.
