ABIM Statement 12/10/18

ABIM is disappointed to learn of a lawsuit filed on behalf of four diplomates. The organization will vigorously defend itself, recognizing that doing so will consume resources far better dedicated to continuous improvement of its programs.

ABIM leadership, volunteers and staff have spent the last several years working with broad segments of the diverse internal medicine community to make ABIM’s program better and enhance the value of ABIM Board Certification to diplomates and the public. Based on interactions with more than 40,000 ABIM diplomates, a number of meaningful changes in the program have been implemented, including:

ABIM leaders are proud of these changes and have devoted substantial resources to making the program better for all diplomates. ABIM’s focus will remain on maintaining a standard of professional achievement that the public values, signaling that ABIM diplomates are well-trained and staying current in their fields to better serve their patients.
