American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Inc Company Profile

12:33 EST 13th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Inc. (ABPN) is a nonprofit corporation that was founded in 1934 following conferences of committees appointed by the American Psychiatric Association, the American Neurological Association, and the then Section on Nervous and Mental Diseases of the American Medical Association. This action was taken as a method of identifying the qualified specialists in psychiatry and neurology.
The ABPN is one of 24 member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).

Since 1935, when its first examination was delivered, the ABPN has been serving the public interest and promoting excellence in the practices of psychiatry and neurology through its certification and maintenance of certification processes. These processes are designed to identify qualified specialists through rigorous credential and training requirements, and successful completion of the Part I (computer-administered), and Part II (oral) board examinations for psychiatry, neurology, or neurology with special qualification in child neurology. ABPN committees are dedicated to developing tests that assess current scientific knowledge and clinical expertise required to achieve and maintain Board-certification.

Additionally, over the past several decades, the ABPN (sometimes in collaboration with other member boards) has sought from the ABMS, and gained approval for recognition of 11 subspecialties as listed below
