Board Certified OBGYN
American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology Certification: To be eligible for certification and maintenance of certification in Obstetrics and Gynecology or an approved subspecialty, candidates and diplomates must devote the majority of their practice to the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) certifies as Diplomates those who satisfactorily complete the examination process. Participation in the certification and maintenance of certification processes is voluntary. Standards of certification are distinct from those of state licensure. American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology certification does not indicate qualification for all aspects of practice privileges, nor does it imply lack of qualification for individuals who are not certified by the ABOG.
American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology certification does not confer upon any person any degree or legal qualifications, privileges or license to practice Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The privileges granted physicians in the practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology in any hospital or other healthcare facility are the prerogative of that facility, not of the ABOG.
The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology does not and cannot attest to the knowledge, judgment, skills, and qualifications of Diplomates related to practice outside of the scope of the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
