Overview of ABAAHP Certification Process
The American Board of Anti-Aging Health Practitioners (ABAAHP) is a certification program of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. ABAAHP issues Diplomate Certification to Doctors of Chiropractic (DC), Doctors of Dentistry (DDS), Naturopathic Doctors (ND), Registered Pharmacists (R.Ph.), Scientists (PhD and similar), Registered Nurses (RN), Nurse Practitioners (NP), Physician Assistants (PA), Doctors of Pharmacy (PharmD) and Acupuncturists.
The American Board of Anti-Aging Health Practitioners was founded in 1999 to provide advanced education, representation, and specialty recognition of scientific and healthcare professionals. The long-term objective of ABAAHP is to achieve formal sub-specialty recognition and a new status for Anti-Aging medicine and for those practicing it as qualified clinicians. Together, the A4M and ABAAHP represent over 24,000 physicians, scientific and healthcare practitioners from 110 nations. The process involves the single step of a written examination, which demonstrates proficiency in several key areas of Anti-Aging medicine. After passing the written exam and completion of certification criteria, a certificate is issued to the healthcare practitioner confirming their status as a Diplomate of Anti-Aging Medicine.
A4M strongly recommends that all interested candidates sign up as far in advance of the examination date as possible. All ABAAHP examinees will benefit by a maximum timeframe during which you may familiarize yourself with study materials provided.
The ABAAHP program is the first certification program of its kind. It raises the standard of professional care and recognition offered by practitioners delivering integrative, complementary, and alternative healthcare as well as allied health professionals. By completing the ABAAHP process, you receive specialty certification as a Diplomate practicing Anti-Aging medicine.
