Why is board certification important to patients?
American Board of Podiatric Surgery protects patients by advancing the art and science of podiatric surgery. Our certification ensures that ABPS-certified surgeons have completed appropriate training, successfully performed a diverse range of podiatric surgical procedures, and passed our extensive written and oral examinations.
What kind of training is required to become board certified by American Board of Podiatric Surgery today?
Certified surgeons must graduate from an accredited four year podiatric medical school and complete residency training at a program approved by the Council on Podiatric Medical Education. They must also have four years of post-doctoral clinical experience and present a diverse mix of documented surgical cases for review by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery Credentials Committee.
