This is the home page of the American Osteopathic Board of Anesthesiology.

The American Osteopathic Board of Anesthesiology is the certifying board for anesthesiology and is dedicated to establishing and maintaining high standards for certification of osteopathic physicians in the practice of anesthesiology and other related subspecialties. The AOBA seeks to ensure that the physicians it certifies demonstrate expertise and competence in the field of anesthesiology. The AOBA is committed to delivery of quality healthcare to all patients by working with the AOA Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists (BOS) in the enhancement and continuous improvement of our certification process.
