Credentialing in medicine.
Joint conference on graduate education in thoracic surgery. Oak Brook IL (USA), 1992/09/25.
This article describes the history and process of credentialing: accreditation of programs and certification of individual practitioners.
Under accreditation, general (institutional) and discipline-specific requirements, both for residencies and fellowships, are considered, along with possible outcomes and the appeals mechanism for an unfavorable review.
Under certification, the relationship between individual specialty boards and the American Board of Medical Specialties is defined, followed by a consideration of the principles underlying subspecialty certification and recertification.
