Membership with the American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Physicians®

The ABQAURP Difference
For over 45 years, the American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Physicians® (ABQAURP) has been spearheading the health care quality movement. ABQAURP strives to continually offer the best continuing education possible through live conferences and online courses. Despite not being a nationally mandated certification in the health care field, ABQAURP has grown to be a premier professional association providing Health Care Quality and Management (HCQM) Certification, ACCME-accredited continuing medical education, and membership to health care professionals worldwide. This is a testament to the dedication and drive of ABQAURP's members to the advancement of health care quality and safety.

Who are ABQAURP's Members?
Diplomates and Members are dedicated to the ABQAURP Mission. ABQAURP's membership is comprised of virtually every type of health care professional, encompassing not only the clinical arena but the managerial backbone as well. Diplomates who have voluntarily achieved certification in Health Care Quality and Management demonstrate a deep commitment to patient safety, health care quality, and effective care. Providers certified in HCQM exude superior ability to critically evaluate the literature, identify evidence-based best practices, and make recommendations that balance appropriateness of services with cost and quality. HCQM Certification addresses effectiveness, efficiency, equity, safety, and timeliness in today's health care environment.
