What does board certified mean?
Because there are physicians that practice dermatology without any formal training or credentialing in the field of dermatology, it is important to understand what board certification means. A dermatologist who has been “board certified” has undergone the strict training required by the American Board of Dermatology.
It starts with the physician doing 1 year of approved post-graduate training, followed by three years of specialized training in the study and treatment of skin, hair, and nails at an accredited ACGME dermatology residency program. Only following this training is the physician eligible to sit for a board examination which extensively tests if he/she has acquired the expertise necessary to practice dermatology.
To be an ABMS board-certified dermatologist, the physician must pass this exam and maintain certification through a series of exams and assessments throughout their lifetime. This process is designed to ensure that dermatologists are qualified to provide care to hospitals, insurers, the government, and dermatology patients alike.
