Dr. Schild earned certified status by passing the ABFM stringent certification examination, a test of the physician’s abilities in the field of family medicine.

Certification signifies that physicians have demonstrated to their peers and to the public that they have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for providing excellent patient care. To maintain certification, physicians participate in activities that assess knowledge of the latest scientific developments and changes in practice and in specialty areas.
The American Board of Family Medicine is one of 24 medical specialty boards that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Through ABMS, the boards work together to establish common standards for physicians to achieve and maintain board certification. The American Board of Family Medicine is an independent, non-profit organization.
