ASN Policy Statement on Maintaining Career Excellence

  1. ASN endorses the role of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM)—as one of the American Board of Medical Specialties' (ABMS's) 24 specialty boards—to provide the initial certification for nephrologists.
  2. ASN supports the lifelong learning of nephrologists through educational activities and self-assessment programs.
  3. ASN believes in the right of each nephrologist to choose a process of maintaining career excellence that affirms the values of the medical profession as well as highlights to the public her/his ability to provide high-quality care.
  4. ASN opposes efforts by entities outside the medical profession (such as government) to weaken the public's faith in the ability of the medical profession to self-regulate.
  5. ASN is committed to working for its members and their patients:
    • To improve all aspects of the assessment of professional competence.
    • To explore innovative approaches to ensuring nephrologists provide high-quality care for their patients.
