The American Board of Urology (ABU) has joined several other member boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) in reporting publicly whether its physicians are meeting ABMS maintenance of certification requirements.

The information can be found on the Web site www.CertificationMatters.org. Since its inception, consumers have visited www.CertificationMatters.org to find out whether their doctor is board certified by a member board(s) of the ABMS. Now they can visit the same site and find out whether their medical specialist is meeting maintenance of certification requirements.

"ABMS is meeting its commitment to patients, families, and communities by providing easy access to important information about individual doctors," said Lois Margaret Nora, MD, ABMS president and CEO.

Other boards joining the ABU in reporting maintenance of certification include the American Board of Allergy and Immunology, the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery, the American Board of Emergency Medicine, the American Board of Medical Genetics, the American Board of Neurological Surgery, the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the American Board of Ophthalmology, the American Board of Preventive Medicine, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery. Member boards reporting this information since August 2011 include the American Board of Dermatology, the American Board of Family Medicine, the American Board of Nuclear Medicine, the American Board of Otolaryngology, the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and the American Board of Surgery.
