ABOG Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery Focused Practice Designation

Dr Tam received the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) Focused Practice Designation on May 7, 2021 (active Diplomate until 12/31/2023).

The focused practice designation in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) provides ABOG the opportunity to establish standards and assessments for this surgical technique within the field of obstetrics and gynecology.

The designation requires physicians to complete an additional ACGME-accredited fellowship training program and pass an assessment given by an ABMS Member Board. Focused practice is an added designation to a certification recognizing additional expertise or focus gained through clinical experience. 

It also allows ABOG to recognize those Diplomates like Dr Tam, who have additional surgical expertise and dedicate a significant percentage of their practice to the care of women with benign and complex gynecologic diseases and manage complications using minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Additionally, the focused practice designation provides Diplomates with special interest in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery a more focused, relevant, and pertinent continuous professional development.

This is a high honor awarded for excellence in the field of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery which is in addition to her COEMIG (Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery)
