We were founded to protect the public by assessing and certifying doctors who meet specific educational, training, and professional requirements.
We are accountable both to the public and to the medical profession. Our commitments include:
1) Helping patients
2) Providing information about the board certification process, as well as which doctors and physicists are board certified
3) Supporting physicians and medical physicists
4) Creating programs that assist doctors in staying current in their fields and improving their practices
5) Collaborating with healthcare leaders
6) Fostering initiatives for the promotion and monitoring of healthcare quality.
7) Transforming healthcare
8) Increasing awareness of the importance of board certification and lifelong learning in assuring quality care

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Continuing Certification

The Continuing Certification program (formerly known as Maintenance of Certification) promotes continued lifelong learning and proficiency. We continue to look for meaningful ways to improve all aspects of our initial certification and CC programs. Our primary focus for the next several years is the implementation and continuous improvement of the ABR's Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA) program, which provides our diplomates an opportunity to continuously assess their clinical practice knowledge, identify practice knowledge gaps, and remediate those gaps through re-assessment.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth

The ABR conducts initial qualifying and certifying examinations to ascertain the qualification of those who have completed training in the specialties of radiology, as well as several subspecialty areas. Following initial certification, radiologists and medical physicists are called "diplomates of the ABR.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To certify that our candidates and diplomates (those who have passed our initial certifying exams) demonstrate the requisite knowledge, skill and understanding of their discipline to the benefit of patients. We offer certification in four specialties (diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology, medical physics, and radiation oncology), and subspecialty certification in neuroradiology, nuclear radiology, pediatric radiology, hospice and palliative medicine, and pain medicine.

Develop and administer reliable initial certifying exams to provide board certification for physicians and physicists who pass our exams.
In addition, create a robust maintenance of certification (MOC) program that promotes continued lifelong learning, regular assessment of clinical knowledge, and continuous improvement in medical practice.

Our mission is supported by a group of ABR-certified physicians and physicists who volunteer their time and expertise in creating all our exams. These volunteers are not compensated financially for their time.
In addition, our Boards of Governors and Trustees, who are also unpaid volunteers, oversee the development of ABR initial certification and maintenance of certification (MOC) program policy, which is implemented by a devoted and professional staff.

Since our founding in 1934, we've issued 70,204 certificates for various specialties and subspecialties in radiology. We continue develop and administer the exams required to issue several certificates every year as part of our initial certification process. Paired with successful completion of accredited residency training, competent candidates are able to become certified by the ABR. In addition, we've created a strong, but reasonable, maintenance of certification (MOC) program that promotes continued lifelong learning and proficiency. We continue to look for meaningful ways to improve all aspects of our initial certification and MOC programs. Our primary focus for the next several years is the development and implementation of the ABR's Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA) program, which will provide our diplomates an opportunity to continuously assess their clinical practice knowledge, identify practice knowledge gaps, and remediate those gaps through re-assessment.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
