The National Board of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons (NBOPAS) is the Osteopathic arm of the National Board of Physicians and Surgeons (NBPAS) and is committed to providing certification that ensures physician compliance with national standards and promotes lifelong learning.
The $189 cost covers a two year certification ($94.50/year) including all your specialties. The fee will be adjusted up or down in future years, determined by our expenses. Physicians in or within 2 years of training qualify for a reduced rate of $49 for a two year certification ($24.50/year). This is $20 more than certifications for NBPAS because the AOA charges a $20 fee per physician for certification verification.
All current AOA specialties are offered. To view current specialties offered, click here.
This is a grass roots initiative. We are working hard to gain acceptance by hospitals and payers. We are also relying on physicians like yourself to spread the word amongst colleagues and your hospital medical executive committee.
