In order to practice medicine in the United States, doctors must be licensed by the states in which they work. But having a license to practice medicine doesn't mean all doctors are qualified to practice in a specific medical specialty, such as bleeding disorders.
At BCDI, we take pride in the fact that all our hematologists and providers are Board Certified.
Our hematologists voluntarily and continuously meet additional standards beyond basic licensing, which signifies the extra step taken to ensure you receive the highest quality care possible. Maintaining their Board Certification means they are committed to career-long learning and assessment required by the rigorous ABMS MOC®program.

Before a doctor can become Board Certified, they must complete:
- Four years of pre-medical education in a college or university
- Course of study leading to an MD or DO degree from a qualified medical school
- Three to five years of full-time experience in an accredited residency training program
- Three to four years of accredited subspecialty training
Our hematologists and providers have demonstrated their expertise by earning Board Certification through one of the 24 Member Boards that are part of the not-for-profit American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). They have passed a written and, in some cases, an oral examination that is created and administered by the Member Board of their specialty.
