WELCOME TO ACFBC

 

The American Council For Board Certification (ACFBC) is a supervisory organization which oversees various independent subspecialty boards and the primary boards and fellowships offered by the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of the United States. The ACFBC encourages individual scholarship, training, and research by the recognition of accomplished specialists. Qualifications for certification include exemplary achievement, peer review of credentials, and oral/written examinations. All Board Certification is granted for 2 years.
