People who work or volunteer for the American Board of Radiology (ABR) do so to serve the profession and the public. Our mission is to certify that radiologists demonstrate the knowledge, skill, and understanding of their disciplines to better serve patients. We are a non-profit organization that was established in 1934 and is one of 24 medical specialty boards that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Every board’s primary role is protecting the public by certifying medical professionals in their fields. Board certification is the beginning of a physician’s commitment to providing quality patient care. The ABMS program for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) activities emphasize ongoing professional development and assessment that is aligned with other professional expectations and requirements within healthcare. Medical societies and associations provide educational resources, including credits toward MOC; host conferences; and publish peer-reviewed journals. They advocate on behalf of their members before lawmakers, insurance carriers, and other key stakeholders. Societies and associations also give their members opportunities to tap into broader professional networks. While boards and societies have different missions, we have common goals. Primary among those is the desire to help physicians continue a lifetime of learning and empower them to continually improve their professions and patient care. Need more information?
