What is the American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM)?
The ABAIM is an independent, nonprofit organization which aims to assist individuals to complete a certification as a credential for knowledge in the principles and applications of artificial intelligence and human cognition in medicine and healthcare (inclusive of related fields/areas of biomedical informatics, biostatistics, trial design, evidence-based medicine, etc).

What is the vision and mission for the ABAIM? 
The vision is to improve understanding and application of artificial intelligence to pursue improved outcome in clinical medicine and healthcare. The mission is to maintain and advance knowledge and expertise in artificial intelligence and human cognition in clinical medicine and health care by certifying clinicians, healthcare professionals, and students as well as data scientists and other stakeholders who meet the standards of knowledge.
 
Who is involved with the ABAIM?
A distinguished multidisciplinary board of officers and leads with a group of advisors comprised of 50+ members (covering subspecialties of clinical medicine, areas of artificial intelligence, or both) was convened for the nascent American Board of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (ABAIM). The advisory group will guide to ABAIM board to execute the strategy to accomplish the vision and mission of the ABAIM.
