The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) establishes the requirements for certification and maintenance of certification for physicians in internal medicine, its subspecialties, and areas of added qualifications. ABIM creates the certifying examinations, works to improve physician training, and contributes to setting the standards for internal medicine and medical quality in general. The Board's Web site provides complete information on certification examinations and the maintenance of certification process including the self-evaluation process. In the Web sites On-line Services area, users can register for exams, enroll in maintenance of certification, and acquire self-evaluation products.

Rachel's note: Received an e-mail via NHIC on 3/13/06 from Robert Botti stating: "You have us listed under Find a Provider. The ABIM does not provide this service. We only provide a verification of certification. This may be a holdover from a previous listing when we did have such a directory and the current communication team was not aware of it when we responded to your requset." The "Find A Provider" tag was eliminated on 4/27/06 per the request above.
