08 Jul What Does it Mean to be A4M Certified?
We at Body RX are one of the top providers in South Florida of Miami Hormone Replacement Therapy and are always proud to announce that our doctors are board-certified, but what does it mean to be A4M Certified?
A4M Certification means you’ve undergone a highly selective certification process with thorough testing and professional examination by some of the top anti-aging professionals in the industry. A process which takes years to complete, once you have A4M certification, your patients can rest assured they are in good hands.
An Overview of A4M
A4m is the acronym for the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, the premier certifying and educational organization that provides advanced industry training and events to doctors specializing in anti-aging medicine. A4M was founded in 1992 by two doctors seeking to improve the way doctors treat patients and promote a more holistic approach to treatment rather than the treatment of just symptoms.
28 years later, A4M is now recognized throughout the world as the top entity for anti-aging medicine training and education.
According to their website:
A4M’s consistent and unwavering goal has been to educate healthcare practitioners and the public, in order to effectively advance technology that can detect, prevent, and ultimately treat all aging-related diseases while optimizing the human aging process. A4M has acquired membership of over 26,000 members, which includes physicians, nurses, scientists, researchers, governmental officials, and members of the general public that represent over 120 nations. The organization works with multiple international partners, and MMI’s educational programs are available worldwide, with specific alliances in South Africa, Australia, Thailand, China, Indonesia, the Middle East, and Europe. A4M is continuing to rapidly grow in scope and size, and hopes to gain further momentum to reach its goals with the help of MMI’s education: to heal patients, and help physicians practice a better, more comprehensive form of medicine.
A4M Certification Process
According to the A4M, The American Board of Anti-Aging / Regenerative Medicine (ABAARM) offers Board Certification to individuals with MD or DO degrees.
The rigorous process of being AABRM certified takes at least one year and begins with a written exam. The Written Exam consists of 120 multiple choice questions with a predominant focus on practical knowledge and skills in diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, nutritional therapies, pharmaceuticals, endocrinology, neurophysiology, and cancer.
The next part of the certification process takes place in a live in-person interview with 1-2 examiners. During the interview, applicants are asked to review one standardized mock case with related clinical questions.
