Who is the ABIM?
For more than 70 years, Certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine
(ABIM) has stood for the highest standard in internal medicine and its 19
subspecialties and has meant that internists have demonstrated – to their peers and
to the public – that they have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for
the delivery of excellent patient care. ABIM is not a membership society, but a non-
profit, independent evaluation organization. The ABIM's accountability is both to the
profession of medicine and to the public.
