    ABMS Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future Commission


    The American Board of Medical Specialties has posted its draft report "Continuing Board Certification: Vision for the Future" for public comment. The report outlines the work of the Vision Commission, their findings, and a set of recommendations for the future of board certification programs. In creating the draft report, the Vision Commission considered input received from numerous stakeholders, reflected in the many hours of testimony and the results of the open stakeholder survey that was posted on its website in mid-2018.

    The Commission will meet one last time to review the comments received and make revisions to the draft before submitting its final report to the ABMS Board of Directors in February 2019.

    To review and/or comment on the draft please visit visioninitiative.org by 11:00 p.m. CST on January 15, 2019.

    The ABFM encourages family physicians to review and comment on this document.
