ABA INTERNATIONAL (ABA-I)
Advancing global standards of excellence in anesthesiology
International partners toward excellence
ABA International (ABA-I) was established in 2012 as a subsidiary of the ABA to serve the medical needs of other nations and regions while helping develop a high-quality physician workforce. ABA-I offers ABA’s In-Training Examination (ITE) and American-style certification to international residents and physicians respectively, in partnership with the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).
The work of ABA-I upholds the ABA’s mission to advance the highest standards of the practice of anesthesiology as it strives for excellence in anesthesiology worldwide. It also aligns ABA assessment standards internationally with an ACGME-I-approved graduate medical education program, including the use of time-limited certification and continuing certification.
