Review Our Mission & Vision
New Subspecialty. No Fellowship Required.
Starting in the fall of 2017, the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) will offer physicians who are certified by a Member Board of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) the opportunity to become certified in the subspecialty of addiction medicine.
The next five years following the date of the first exam is an optimum time for physicians to become Board Certified in addiction medicine as applicants will NOT be required to complete an addiction medicine fellowship. More
