Board Certification in Phlebology
The American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM), formerly the American Board of Phlebology, was established in 2007 to improve the standards of medical practitioners and the quality of patient care related to the treatment of venous disorders and all aspects of venous disease, to serve the public and the medical profession by establishing initial and continuing qualifications for certification and maintenance of certification as physician specialists in the practice of phlebology, to examine physician candidates for certification and maintenance of certification in the practice of phlebology, to establish educational standards for teaching and training programs in phlebology, and to maintain a registry of individuals who hold certificates issued by the Board.
The ABVLM and the establishment of a Board Certification Exam brings recognition to both the field of phlebology and those providers in the field who have the knowledge, skills, and experience to provide quality care to phlebology patients. While many practice in the field of phlebology in Maine, there are just six board certified phlebologists in the state who meet this high standard.
