Cardiologists can now obtain subspecialty certification in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology from the American Osteopathic Board of Internal Medicine (AOBIM).
This new certification recognizes the distinct and critical knowledge, skills, abilities and judgments required of physicians who practice in the advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology subspecialty.
Applicants must be AOBIM board-certified specialists in cardiology who have completed three years of an ACGME- or AOA-recognized fellowship in cardiology followed by a one-year ACGME- or AOA-recognized fellowship in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.
For the first three years/three exams (2019, 2020 and 2021), AOBIM-certified cardiologists who have not completed formal training in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology will be eligible to apply for this certification via the practice pathway.
