Board Certification

Quality care you can count on.

Cancer Risk Assessment 1Board certification means your doctor has shown outstanding expertise and commitment to his or her medical specialty and has undergone extensive training. At Harrison, 90 percent of our physicians are board certified—far exceeding the national average.

After many years of medical school, internship, residency, fellowship, and passing difficult medical board exams, doctors can practice medicine. Many who specialize become board certified within their specialty—such as family medicine, internal medicine, oncology, cardiology, dermatology, and so on. Board certification occurs when your doctor has passed a medical-specialty exam.

To remain board certified, your doctor takes part in extensive requirements, such as:

  • lifelong continuing medical education
  • providing quality care
  • specialty training
  • upholding best practices
  • providing patient-focused care
  • board recertification exams
