New term for diplomates' use in promoting ABS certification
DABS - Diplomate of the American Board of Surgery
To assist diplomates in promoting their ABS certification, we recently trademarked the term DABS™ for use after their name. Current diplomates are welcome to add this term to business cards, websites and other materials. As this is a new term, you may wish to also include explanatory text, like so:
Jane E. Smith, M.D., DABS (Diplomate of the American Board of Surgery)
Jane E. Smith, M.D., DABS
Diplomate, The American Board of Surgery
Diplomates may also promote their ABS certification with personalized brochures to be displayed in offices. Please see below for samples of these brochures, and contact the ABS office to request your personalized version.
