ABMS Issues Call for Comments on Draft Standards

May 19, 2021
The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) has opened its 80-day Call for Comments on the Draft Standards for Continuing Certification. Comments are due Thursday, July 8, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. CST.

This Call for Comments seeks to obtain input and feedback from all stakeholders who possess, use, or rely upon the board certification credential as an indicator of a diplomate’s professionalism and proficiency in specialty knowledge and skills. The feedback received will guide and inform the development of the final Draft Standards for Continuing Certification, which will be considered by the ABMS Board of Directors in October 2021.

While respondents to the Draft Standards for Continuing Certification – Call for Comments survey are asked to provide identifying information, it is done solely for analysis purposes; individual identification will remain private from ABMS and Member Boards. All comments will be reviewed and considered.

Learn more and take the Call for Comments survey on the ABMS website.
