Board certification is a voluntary act and there is no mandate that doctors become board certified. However, board certification demonstrates a physician's exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice and has become the gold standard when looking for credentials of physicians.
For the patient, board certification provides the assurance that doctors have not only been rigorously trained in their specialty, but have been tested with a national standardized examination and is actively improving his or her practice of medicine through continuing education.
