The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology is an independent, non-profit organization that certifies obstetricians and gynecologists in the United States.
Founded in 1927, the ABOG is one of 24 specialty Boards recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
IMPORTANT NEW DOCUMENT
The ABOG has developed a more expanded version of the Definition
of an Obstetrician-Gynecologist. ABOG-Certified Diplomates are
expected to practice consistent with this definition. Failure to do so
may result in loss of certification.
