ABPM Announces Expanded Eligibility Requirements

American Board of Preventive Medicine and the American Osteopathic Association Announce Expanded Eligibility Requirements for Three Subspecialties

Expanded Eligibility Recognition Serves as Step Toward Single Accreditation System
The American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) has announced the formal recognition of American Osteopathic Association (AOA) board certification as an acceptable primary certification required for eligibility for certification in three ABPM subspecialties. This time-limited change aligns with the establishment of a single accreditation system in graduate medical education. The change will allow AOA board certification to serve as the primary credential to obtain certification in select subspecialties.
Beginning with the ABPM 2020 Examination Cycle, AOA board certification will be recognized as an acceptable primary certificate for physicians seeking subspecialty certification in Addiction Medicine, Clinical Informatics and Undersea Hyperbaric Medicine from ABPM.

To read the rest of the announcement, please see ABPM's announcement.
