Slide 1 - The ABAM Certification and Recertification Examination Saturday, December 15, 2012
Slide 2 - Purpose: To identify for patients, physicians with the knowledge, experience and skills to provide quality healthcare within the specialty of Addiction Medicine. ABAM-Certification involves a rigorous process of testing that is designed and administered by specialists in the field of Addiction Medicine. This certification closely parallels standards set by the ABMS. Select criteria are met to sit for the examination. To date, over 2,500 Physicians have been certified in Addiction Medicine by ABAM. Introduction to the ABAM Examination
Slide 3 - ABAM-Certified by Specialty
Slide 4 - Treatment Centers, hospitals, & managed care organizations actively seek & recruit ABAM-Certified members to provide direction & leadership for their programs. Several states (such as NJ) require their Medical Directors be certified in ADM. Physicians who hold ABAM-Certification qualify to receive a waiver from the special registration requirements of the Controlled Substances Act for the provision of medication-assisted opioid therapy. Board Certification enhances applications for those interested in medical school faculty appointments. State Hospitals & Medical Facilities call on ABAM-Certified Physicians for testimony on issues and legislation related to substance abuse & treatment. The widely-recognized National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) 2008 Standards for Accreditation of Managed Behavioral Healthcare Organizations (MBHOs) require MBHOs accredited by NCQA to have policies & procedures for credentialing "psychiatrists and/or physicians who are certified in addiction medicine."
