Certificate Verification FAQs

Last verified on July 10, 2017
 

How can I find out if a particular radiologist, radiation oncologist, or medical physicist is certified?

The ABR provides a free online searchable database to find and verify the status of ABR-certified individuals. The database can be accessed on the home page of the website (www.theabr.org) in the upper right corner (“Verify board certification status”).
The information provided on the ABR website is accurate, up-to-date, and solely provided by the ABR. It is considered a primary source verification.  

Can I print out an official verification letter from the ABR website?

Yes, you can easily print an ABR watermarked letter showing the status of each certificate, at no charge. After you enter a name and hit the search button in the “Verify board certification status” tool on the home page (www.theabr.org), the “Verify Board Certification Status” page will appear. Click on the “View/Print” icon in the upper right corner of the gray box, and the printable letter will appear.  

I am an ABR-certified physician or physicist, or a candidate in the process of ABR certification. Can I still get a formal written verification of my own status?

If you are a diplomate of the ABR, or a candidate in the process of ABR certification, we will provide an official letter of verification to you for a discounted processing fee of $30. If the letter is sent to a third party, the fee is still $30. The fee is payable by check, VISA™, MASTERCARD™, or AMERICAN EXPRESS™. We are unable to accept any other credit card types. Please use this form.  

Third-party verification: Can I still get a formal written verification of a physician or physicist’s status?

For third parties, we will provide an official letter of verification for a processing fee of $100, payable by check, VISA™, MASTERCARD™, or AMERICAN EXPRESS™. We are unable to accept any other credit card types. Please use this form.
You may also send a written request, accompanied by the fee, to:
          The American Board of Radiology
          ATTN: Certification Verification
          5441 E. Williams Circle
          Tucson, AZ 85711-7412
 

Do you provide referrals?

No, the ABR does not give referrals.  

Can you give me any background on a particular radiologist?

We will only verify whether an individual is certified and in which specialty or subspecialty. If an individual is still in the exam process, the verification will include that information.  

Do you publish any mailing lists?

No, ABR data are kept confidential.
