Board Certification


American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine

The American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine (ABIHM) is closely aligned with the AHMA as several AHMA members were founders of ABIHM.  ABIHM is the certifying body of holistic medicine, helping train the healthcare providers who support patients on their path of healing.

ABIHM was incorporated in 1996 to:
  • Evaluate the candidacy of applicants desiring certification as specialists in holistic medicine.
  • Establish and maintain high standards of excellence in the specialty of holistic medicine.
  • Improve the quality of medical care provided to the public.
  • Serve the public, physicians, health practitioners, hospitals, therapists, educators, state medical boards, and third-party insurance carriers, by having available, a roster of the diplomats certified by the board.

Board Certification in Integrative Holistic Medicine for MDs and DOs 

Due to overwhelming demand, the ABIHM has added a cycle of certification exams in 2014. 

1. May 5 -16, 2014: Computer-Based Exam
2. October 31, 2014: Pencil and Paper Exam, at the conclusion of the 15th Annual Science and Clinical Application of Integrative Holistic Medicine Conference in San Diego.
