What does it mean to be board certified?
Each specialty of medicine has its own board, which administers exams and credentials medical doctors as specialists in their field. This means a board certified doctor has proven themselves to be an expert in their field. Not every doctor is board certified.
To maintain board certification a doctor has to continue education and training over their career, and re-certify with exams, ensuring they are up-to-date and know about cutting edge treatments!
