definition of ablm diplomate

  • ABLM Diplomate is a licensed physician/attorney who holds a certificate from the American Board of Legal Medicine, attesting to satisfactory evidence of special training and competence, demonstrated by successfully completing a Board Certification examination in Legal Medicine.
ablm diplomate is a hybrid
ABLM Diplomate is a “Hybrid”
  • ABLM Diplomate is “NOT” merely a Physician or an Attorney. He/She is a Physician-Attorney.
  • ABLM has the very highest competency standard in the U.S.
  • ABLM requires a second Doctorate degree (JD) to qualify

ABLM Diplomate is a “Hybrid”
  • ABLM standard surpasses ALL other nationally recognized certifying organizations:
    • ABMS
    • AOA Specialty Boards
    • ABPS
ablm board certified specialist
ABLM Board Certified Specialist
  • Virtually all Dual-Degreed MD’s & DO’s acquire Residency training in a medical specialty or subspecialty
  • The ABLM regards the additional 2-3 years of education in an Accredited University School of Law as the “Equivalent of Fellowship” in a medical specialty.

ABLM Board Certified Specialist
  • May an ABLM Diplomate claim that he/she is a “Board Certified” Legal Medicine Specialist?
  • By Statute or Regulation, most States, including Oklahoma, do not allow physicians to publicly claim to be “Board Certified”, unless the Specialty is recognized, or equivalent, to an ABMS.
ablm holds highest standard
ABLM: Holds Highest Standard
  • Because the ABLM requires physicians to have a second doctoral degree (JD), its standard is not only equivalent to, but in fact EXCEEDS the ABMS Standard.
  • No State Medical Licensing Board has prohibited the “HYBRID” ABLM Physician-Attorney Diplomates from claiming they are “Board Certified” Legal Medicine Specialists.
2009 ruling by the osbmls
2009: Ruling by the OSBMLS
  • The ABLM is NOT recognized as an ABMS Specialty, which requires only an MD degree, and NOT Dual Degrees.
  • In 2009, in a historic U.S. case of first impression by a State licensing Board, Sanbar, as required by Rule, petitioned the OSBMLS to permit him to publicly use the words, “Board Certified” by the ABLM.
unique ruling by osbmls
UNIQUE Ruling by OSBMLS
  • Upon Review & Consideration of the Sanbar Case in Executive session, the OSBMLS ruled that:
    • “Physician-Attorneys” DO NOT fall under the Rule, which applies to MD “Physicians.”
    • The Board has NO Jurisdiction over “Physician-Attorneys” (HYBRID);
    • Therefore, Sanbar may claim that he is “Board Certified” by the ABLM.
