ABIM Policy for Program Director

| November 15, 2017 | Print Article


You may have heard something about the ABIM continuing to enforce its policy that all program director attestations for board eligibility be completed by an ABIM certified program director.  This policy has been modified to allow for attestations to be completed by any certified program director until 2020, to accommodate the transition of AOA programs to ACGME.  Beginning in 2021, all program directors that certify a resident is eligible to sit for an ABIM board must be ABIM certified.  Pathways are available for non-ABIM certified physicians to become certified.  Further information is available on the ABIM website.
