Two major organizations that serve cardiologists are the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC). The ABIM is a nonprofit independent evaluation organization that certifies physicians in internal medicine and its 19 subspecialties, including cardiovascular disease. One out of every four practicing physicians in the United States is board certified by the ABIM—more than 200,000 physicians in all. To be "board certified" means that the physician has demonstrated to his or her peers and to the public that they have the clinical skills, judgment, and attitudes that are needed to deliver excellent patient care.
