An Alliance of nearly 20,000 physicians spun out of ARDMS
For Physicians by Physicians
Setting the standard in diagnostic medical imaging
Driving the Advancement of Health Care

Welcome to APCA!​

We are delighted to welcome you to the Alliance for Physician Certification and Advancement (APCA), the new physician-centric council, spun out of ARDMS.  APCA is dedicated to serving physicians in their enduring commitment to continual learning and providing high-quality and compassionate patient care through certification. To date, nearly 20,000 physicians have been welcomed into APCA.

What the APCA Launch Means for Physicians
As a physician, you may apply, prepare for, and maintain both your APCA and ARDMS certifications through APCA. 

Physician-centric certifications like the RMSK, RPVI, RPVI-China, CBNC and CBCCT will now be administered and awarded by APCA.  The new Latin American Ultrasound Certificate Program and the Ultrasound Point-of-Care program (coming soon) are also managed by APCA. ARDMS will continue to award the sonographer-level RDMS, RDCS, RVT and RMSKS credentials.

For Physicians Transitioning to APCA from ARDMS:
As of June 15th, all physicians who received certifications from ARDMS are now part of the APCA.  From this point forward all the services, reminders, and notifications about your APCA and ARDMS certification(s) will now be provided by APCA.

All of us, APCA physician volunteer leaders and staff alike, welcome you to APCA and look forward to working both with you and for you.
