In addition to his ABR duties, Dr. Rosenzweig has also served as: 

  • President of the American Radium Society, the nation’s oldest society dedicated to the study of cancer.

The BOT advances the quality, relevance, and effectiveness of the ABR’s exams for Initial and Continuing Certification across diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, radiation oncology, and medical physics. The BOT makes recommendations to the Board of Governors regarding candidate and diplomate assessment structure including, but not limited to, exam format, content, assembly, delivery, scoring, and feedback. 

Window to Apply for Visiting Scholars Program Closing Soon


Time is running out for residents and early career physicians and physicists to apply for the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Visiting Scholars Program

Applications will be accepted until June 17. Visiting Scholars participate in research projects that address pressing health care issues and research priorities for the Member Board community during the one-year, part-time program. The ABR partners with the ABMS to assist candidates and diplomates with their research efforts and leadership development.

The ABR’s goal is to fund up to four projects each year, preferably with one participant from each of the specialties that it certifies: diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, medical physics, and radiation oncology.
