When a doctor says he is board certified what does that really mean?
It means he has achieved the highest level of testing for his particular medical specialty. It means he has completed medical school for four years and then completed an approved internship and residency training program.
Depending upon the type of medical specialty, that training program may be three years, four years, five years or longer. After the doctor has finished his residency training program, he must then go out and work for two years before becoming eligible to take the board examinations.
The doctor must pass the written part of the exam in order to take the oral board examinations which are usually given by senior physicians in that specialty.
