Published in Cooperation
BoardCertifiedDocs.com is published by Elsevier
in cooperation with the American Board of
Medical Specialties (ABMS). This authoritative reference tool provides
certification status and complete biographical and professional
information about board certified physicians. It is designed to help a
wide range of professionals and businesses in the medical community
with credential verification, referrals, research and more.
At BoardCertifiedDocs you can check a physician's board
certification status, medical education and work history. With monthly
certification updates and daily biographical updates,
BoardCertifiedDocs provides instant access to complete profiles on
more than 900,000 board certified physicians.
The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is recognized as a primary source of board certification information and BoardCertifiedDocs.com has been designated by the ABMS as an
Official Display Agent and provides this primary source data on the
organization's behalf. NOTE: Board certification information (which includes MOC) is reported by the ABMS Member Boards. As a Display Agent, we display what the boards report through ABMS and we cannot change that information on the profiles. If there is a question about certification or MOC data on a profile, please contact the Editorial team (see the Contact Us page), to investigate discrepancies with ABMS.
The profiles on Board Certified Docs meet the requirements from
The Joint Commission (TJC), the National
Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC) and Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). To view and print the

In order to ensure that our list customers are provided with the most
current and accurate mailing information, Elsevier
has contracted with Lake Group Media to handle your list needs.
BoardCertifiedDocs allows you to download or save discrete physician
profiles, including groups of specialists, but does not allow
exporting of the mailing information to build a list.
A complete rate card with list rental details for the ABMS
file is available at
