Diplomate of the American Board of Family Medicine (DABFM) Designation

As a family physician who maintains certification through ABFM, you are a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Medicine (DABFM)and are permitted to list this designation after your name. This notable achievement will aid you in distinguishing yourself from non-board-certified physicians and other medical practitioners.

To effectively display designations after your name, it is recommended that you list your highest earned degree first followed by any other degrees you wish to list, then any licenses, designations, or certifications. For example, John Doe, MD, DABFM or Jane Doe, DO, MPH, DABFM.
