We are now an official subspecialty in the US!

In case you haven't heard AAHPM has made the following announcement:

ABMS Recognizes Hospice and Palliative Medicine

We received word today from Paul Sloan, ABHPM Trustee, who was present this morning at the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Assembly meeting, that ABMS has voted unanimously to establish a subspecialty in Hospice and Pallative Medicine.

Ten boards co-sponsored the motion:
The American Board of Internal Medicine
The American Board of Anesthesiology
The American Board of Family Medicine
The American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology
The American Board of Surgery
The American Board of Pediatrics
The American Board of Emergency Medicine
The American Board of Radiology
The American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology

We expect to receive an official announcement later this week from ABMS that we will forward to you.
