ABPS Diplomates are the best advocates for their certification, and we empower our Diplomates to speak up about their board certification. The ABPS External Affairs Department has created several tools and resources that Diplomates can use when speaking with their health care organization. The External Affairs Team also provides assistance to Diplomates with certification acceptance issues related to employment, insurance, and credentialing.
