The American Board of Wound Healing (ABWH) provides a pathway for certification to wound care and hyperbaric practitioners who meet established educational, professional, clinical and examination standards. ABWH certification is available to a variety of clinicians, including physicians, nurses, technicians and other allied health professionals. Successful completion of an ABWH examination is recognized by a Certification of Added Qualification. The ABWH is not a membership association.
In particular, the ABWH offers exams for Physician Certification in Hyperbaric Medicine, Physician Certification in Wound Care, and Certified Hyperbaric and Wound Specialist (CHWS).
The ABWH will offer all three exams at the APWCA National Clinical Conference in Orlando, Florida, on Sunday 1 April 2012.
