Specialty board certification, though voluntary, has become an indispensable designation for many osteopathic physicians. The authors report rates of osteopathic specialty board certification and recertification for osteopathic physicians. In the past year, osteopathic specialty boards have proposed conjoint examinations in hospice and palliative medicine as well as in sleep medicine. Plans for the addition of a new conjoint examination for undersea and hyperbaric medicine are also described.
