What it Means to be ABS Board-Certified

The American Board of Surgery (ABS) offers certification in general surgery, vascular surgery, pediatric surgery, surgical critical care, surgery of the hand, plus hospice and palliative medicine. The ABS is one of 24 member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties. ABS certification is a voluntary process meant to recognize individuals who have met a defined standard of education, training and knowledge in the field of surgery. Board certification is different from having a medical license, which is required by law to practice medicine. Board certification is specialty-specific, whereas medical licensure is not.
