WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT MY DOCTOR IS BOARD CERTIFIED?

Medical specialty certification in the United States is a voluntary process. While medical licensure sets the minimum competency requirements to diagnose and treat patients, it is not specialty specific. Board certification --- and the Gold Star --- demonstrate a physician's exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice.

 

The Gold Star signals a board certified physician's commitment and expertise in consistently achieving superior clinical outcomes in a responsive, patient-focused setting. Patients, physicians, healthcare providers, insurers and quality organizations look for the Gold Star as the best measure of a physician's knowledge, experience and skills to provide quality healthcare within a given specialty.

 

Certification involves a rigorous process of testing and peer evaluation that is designed and administered by specialists in the specific area of medicine.
