American Board Of Laser Surgery

I get a lot of questions from laser physicians about the American Board of Laser Surgery. I thought I would leave a short post about the benefits of becoming a diplomat of the ABLS. It is the only recognized specialty board specifically for laser surgery. We have members from many countries because most other countries do not have a laser board. It is like any other board certification with a written and oral exam.  Through the process, the practitioner will gain extensive knowledge about laser procedures, safety, theory, physics, and other information. Feel free to ask me any questions about it!

You indicated that you were leaving a post on the benefits of joining ABLS. It appears that you're targeting physicians outside of the US. Is that so?

Is the only benefit the information gleaned from studying to be accepted?

I am sorry but I do not understand your comment about the "information gleamed". please explain or email me.

The ABLS is the only certifying board for laser in the world so many from other countries apply. we promote to anyone who is qualified.

Hello Dr. Seiler, My question had to do with ongoing benefits. You indicated that studying for the test would teach a physician a lot. I'm wondering what the ongoing benefits might be after you're a member. (Sorry I wasn't clear.)

The ongoing benefits are many. You would be able to use the listserve in which you can email others with questions. There are advanced certificates that you can apply for and achieve as your experience in years and case numbers grows. You would be recognized as part of an elite group of laser specialists. And there are opportunities for ongoing learning, education, and meetings. Feel free to email me personally if you would like to discuss. Thanks!
