Texas Board weighs dispute over ER doc training

The Courier of Montgomery County, September 23, 2010

The primary certifying body has been the American Board of Medical Specialties, a 76-year-old association that in 1988 began requiring emergency doctors fulfill a specialized three-year residency.
