Promoting Holistic Healing & Practices
The American Board of Holistic Medicine was founded in 1996 and officially changed its name to the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine in 2008. The Vision of the ABIHM is to establish and maintain the highest standards of medical care, ignite and sustain the joy and passion of physicians in their work, establish the role of unconditional love as the basis of healing and support, and to recognize the importance of the health of the planet as integral to human health. The intention of this process is the transformation of medical systems towards holism, by combining science and compassion.
The current direction of the ABIHM is to develop the American Board of Integrative Medicine (ABoIM) with the University of Arizona and other academic institutions under the administration of the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS). The ABoIM certification will involve a fellowship prerequisite, which may be waived for physicians who have studied/practiced integrative medicine. Active ABIHM Diplomates will be partially eligible for a fellowship waiver. Please see the ABPS website to learn more about the ABoIM.
To learn more about the ABoIM and its implications for ABIHM Diplomates or interested candidates, see our Specialty Page. For information about how to register for one of our next three certification examinations, please refer to our Board Certification Page. All ABIHM Diplomates who wish to become certified by the ABPS will be required to sit for the new exam.
