Excellence in Wound Medicine and Surgery

The American Board of Wound Medicine and Surgery (ABWMS) is an independent, non-profit evaluative organization whose accountability is to the practice of medicine as well as to the public which we serve. The Board stands for the highest standards in the management of wounds and has but one objective; to promote and recognize excellence in the care of patients with wounds.

Our Mission

To enhance the overall quality of health care by offering board certification in Wound Medicine and Surgery to physicians in the United States and Canada. This certification will be based upon an examination offered to those physicians who demonstrate appropriate pre-requisite qualifications in addition to the necessary knowledge base and commitment to the care and management of wounds.
