San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
The fourth class of diplomates for the American Board of Phlebology (ABPh) has just been confirmed. ABPh has now awarded diplomate status to 520 practitioners within the United States and Canada. Less than 1% of all phlebology professionals in the US and Canada have earned certification from the ABPh.
Dr. Kenneth Steven’s certification with the American Board of Phlebology is a direct reflection of his skill, knowledge, and experience in providing quality patient care, and his continued commitment to the advancement of vein care. To become board certified is truly an accomplishment.
To become an ABPh diplomate, an applicant must complete the requisite training and experience qualifications, meet the continuing medical education requisites, and pass a stringent certification examination. Certification periods are ten years and maintenance is dependent on the ability of the diplomate to display competency in four areas of assessment: evidence of professional standing, evidence of commitment to lifelong-learning and periodic self-assessment, evidence of cognitive expertise and evaluation of performance in practice.
Dr. Kenneth Stevens is the founder of Premier Heart and Vein Care in San Luis Obispo, California. In addition to his new status as ABPh diplomate, Dr. Stevens is board certified in cardiovascular diseases, phlebology and internal medicine. His experience includes serving as a Team Physician for the U.S. Olympic Team and as Chairman of the OSF/St. Anthony Regional Heart Institute and Department of Medicine.
