The Board of Trustees advances the quality, relevance, and effectiveness of the ABR’s exams for Initial Certification and Continuing Certification across all disciplines of radiology. The trustees make operational decisions, including exam goals, format, content, assembly, delivery, scoring, and feedback.
Members of the Board of Trustees have specialty and subspecialty expertise, reflecting major areas of clinical practice.
Established in 1934, the ABR’s mission is to certify that our diplomates demonstrate the requisite knowledge, skill, and understanding of their disciplines to the benefit of patients. The ABR is one of 24 member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties.
