Welcome to the American Board of Family Medicine website. If you wish to verify a physician’s certification status, please select Verifications from the options below. You will also find information on Board Eligibility, Physician Status, and Withdrawal of Certification Status.
ABFM no longer issues certificates with end dates; however, we recognize that some entities require a current certification status to complete primary source verification. We update this status on our website on an annual basis. We encourage credentialers to use ABFM’s annual re-verification date of February 15 to obtain accurate information about your physician’s current certification status by visiting the verification page on or after February 15 annually. By utilizing the annual re-verification date suggested, you will have accurate information about a Diplomate’s current certification status.
Note for 2022 Verifications: Due to COVID-19 extensions being offered to physicians whose certification was due to expire in 2020 and 2021, we encourage credentialers to verify status on or after July 15, 2022 to obtain the most accurate information regarding the physician’s current status.
