ABMS reaffirms support for diplomates

The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and its 24 Members Boards have issued a statement reaffirming their “support for physicians to focus their priorities on patients, families, and the communities they serve.”

ABMS and its Member Boards are “allowing flexibility during this critical time for our nation’s diplomates. Examples include enhanced activities and heightened education in partnership with specialty societies focused on COVID-19, to deferment of activities or requirements and/or the extension of cycle deadlines, depending on the timing of activities in the Boards’ continuing certification programs in 2020.
