About the Board

ABAI Previous Board Members

The Board of Directors consists of an equal number of ABAI-certified internists and ABAI-certified pediatricians, who are nominated by the sponsoring societies, and the ABAI itself, for six-year terms. Directors serving as representatives to either ABIM or ABP continue on the ABAI through that term.
