About

It’s Time for a Board of Our Own

Cardiology has evolved into a distinct medical specialty, requiring extensive knowledge and training specific to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease that is separate from the field of internal medicine. With this evolution, it is time for a new competency-based approach to continuous certification – one that harnesses the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to sustain professional excellence and care for cardiovascular patients effectively.

To that end, a consortium of cardiovascular societies has come together to submit an application to the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) requesting the creation of a new Board of Cardiovascular Medicine. The societies have worked collaboratively to put together concepts for a new Board to effectively sustain professional excellence and provide cardiovascular patients with the utmost confidence in their care.
