Wound Care Certification By Portfolio to End

Over a thousand wound care professionals have gained or are in the process of gaining Board Certification from the American Academy of Wound Management via completion and review of a portfolio of materials documenting experience and training in wound management.

This portfolio or experiential method of attaining board certification in wound management will end June 30,1999, and all candidates must complete all portfolio requirements by June 30,1999, in order to be considered for final review and, if approved, board certification. After June 30, 1999, Board Certification in wound management can only be achieved via a passing score on the Board Certification Examination.

The first examination is scheduled for October 4, 1999, during the 14th Annual Clinical Symposium on Wound Care, to be held in Denver, CO.
