Author information

  • 1American Osteopathic Association, 142 E Ontario St, Chicago, IL 60611-2864, USA.


Specialty board certification is an important tool in recognizing physicians who take extra measures to establish their skills in any number of specialty areas. The American Osteopathic Association Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists, which oversees the 18 specialty certifying boards, continues to amend existing policies and implement new policies to improve the certification process. Among these policies, the authors describe new collaboration efforts, the development of the osteopathic continuous certification process, and revisions to board eligibility. An update on AOA certification awards, including certificates of added qualifications, is also provided.
