ABQAURP, an independent non-profit organization, has certified over 9,400 physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals through its ultimate goal to improve the quality of our nation's health care. For the past 15 years, ABQAURP's examination methodology has undergone rigorous review by the NBME.
Arthur Broder, MD, CHCQM, Chair of ABQAURP Board of Directors noted, "ABQAURP is the only entity that offers a certification examination for clinical and non-clinical health care professionals in medical management, risk management, and quality-based knowledge that is overseen by the NBME. We are pleased to work with the NBME, whose assessment programs follow a sound developmental model and incorporate the latest statistical and technological developments."

NBME supports the development, administration, and analysis of ABQAURP's Health Care Quality Management and Patient Safety Exam and more than 50 other examination programs for certification, recertification, in-training, self-assessment, or evaluation of special competence.
