The Meaning of Cosmetic Surgery Board Certification
To practice medicine in the United States, doctors must be licensed by the states in which they practice. However, being licensed does not indicate whether a doctor is qualified to practice in a medical specialty, such as cosmetic surgery.
By choosing a board certified plastic surgeon in Orlando who is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc., you can be assured that your cosmetic surgeon has graduated from an accredited medical school and has completed at least five years of additional training as a resident surgeon in a program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Medical Education. This includes a minimum of five years of residency training in all areas of surgery, including at least two years devoted entirely to plastic surgery. To become a board certified plastic surgeon, the doctor then must pass comprehensive written and oral exams. To make sure board certified doctors continuously refresh and expand their knowledge, Member Boards have also established the ABMS Maintenance of Certification program for career-long self-assessment, learning and improvement activities.
