BOARD CERTIFICATION (Boarded, Diplomate): A doctor who is board certified has pursued advanced training in his or her specialty and has passed a qualifying examination; a doctor who is board eligible has received the training but has not taken or passed the exam.

BOARD ELIGIBLE: Describes a physician who is eligible to take the specialty board examination by virtue of being graduated from an approved medical school, completing a specific type and length of training, and practicing for a specified amount of time. Some HMOs and other health facilities accept board eligibility as equivalent to board certification, significant in that many managed care companies restrict referrals to physicians without certification.
