People in America go to the emergency department, 150 million times each year.

At any given moment in the emergency department, life hangs in the balance. A physician board certified in Emergency Medicine is best equipped to lead emergency care.

Certification by the American Board of Emergency Medicine is the gold standard for emergency physicians.

It indicates a physician is dedicated to delivering high-quality care and has demonstrated the skills and expertise needed to meet the highest professional credential in Emergency Medicine. It also signals a physician’s commitment to staying up-to-date with the latest medical advances.

Certification Matters

Physicians certified by the American Board of Emergency Medicine are rightly proud.

Others acknowledge it, too. ABEM is the first medical specialty board to be accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, an independent, non-governmental agency that since 1977 has ensured professional certification programs adhere to modern standards of health, welfare and safety.

Research shows nearly 80% of surveyed adults prefer a physician to lead their medical care in an emergency, compared to a registered nurse (8%), nurse practitioner (6%) or physician assistant (5%).
