The ABMS Directory
We are not accepting new subscriptions for this website.
    The Official ABMS Directory of Board Certified Medical Specialists is a fully electronic reference tool.

    Previously published as a multi-volume, annual print reference with a companion website, it became increasingly difficult to keep the Directory up to date with new specialists and new information.

    An invaluable resource for patrons who want to know:
    • Is my doctor board certified?
    • Who are the board certified physicians in the specialty I need in my geographic area? (e.g. I need a Pediatrician in Grand Rapids or an Allergist in Spokane, etc)

    As an electronic directory this information is a fully searcheable electronic database that includes:
    • Quick and easy search form. Search by name, gender, specialty, subspecialty, city, state, zip code and original certification year - or any combination!
    • Quarterly updates (instead of just once a year when it was a book)
    • Detailed, easy to read physician profiles, (without the cryptic abbreviations that were necessary in the past), including:
      • Specialty(ies) in which the physician is certified
      • An indication of how long the physician has been practicing
      • Maintenance of Certification participation status (continuous professional development for physicians)
      • Additional professional information, when available including:
        • Birth Place
        • Medical school attended
        • Where Internship, Residency and Fellowship training was completed
        • Hospital Appointments
        • Type of Practice
        • Professional Memberships
        • Primary and Secondary office contact information (including fax numbers and websites)
