What is Certification?
Certification or the word certify as defined by Webster's Collegiate Dictionary (2000) means, to attest as being true or as represented as meeting a standard. It is through a set of standards that the American Medical Certification Association has developed each of its exams. Each exam is developed by a team of Subject Matter Experts who have years of experience in their chosen field. The exams are designed to meet standards that will certify each successful exam candidate has proven that they are knowledgeable in their specific subject matter.
