Board Certification

What does board certification mean for a dermatologist?

Does a doctor have to be board certified to practice medicine? No.

But as a patient you want someone who stays up-to-date with the latest developments, medicines and treatments in her specialty.  For any physician, board certification means your doctor has gone above and beyond the many years of education by passing the exams given by her specialty’s governing body.

In the case of dermatology, board certification is granted the American Board of Dermatology after the requirements, including additional training, are met.  The board exam demonstrates a physician’s knowledge of advances in medicine in her specialty.

See this Forbes article on patronizing only board-certified dermatologists.

I am triple board certified in Dermatology, Dermatopathology and Mohs surgery.

More information about board certification see the American Board of Dermatology.
