  1. 1. Candidates Certified - All CandidatesPresented here are the total number of certificates and the total number of currently validcertificates issued by the ABIM by discipline as of April 3, 2012. These data are updatedannually.The “All Certificates" column identifies the total number of certificates issued, includingcertified internists/subspecialists known to be deceased and/or those whose certificates areno longer valid. The “Valid Certificates" column does not contain these groups. Candidates Certified by State: All States and US TerritoriesState identification is based on the most recent address provided to the ABIM by thephysician. The ABIM has limited contact with some Board Certified physicians. Therefore,the accuracy of many addresses is uncertain. Candidates Certified by Country: All Countries (Non-US)Country identification is based on the most recent address (outside the United States)provided to the ABIM by the physician. The ABIM has limited contact with some BoardCertified physicians. Therefore, the accuracy of many addresses is uncertain.Because the ABIM does not have addresses for every candidate in its database, summingthe All States and US Territories data with the All Countries (Non-US) data may not producethe Total data reported for All Certificates or the Total data reported for Valid Certificates.
