In brief: AOBS or ABTS
There are two major boards that credential thoracic surgeons.
There is the american board of osteopathic surgeons (with a specific certification in cardiothoracic surgery), and the american board of thoracic surgeons. It depends on which type of medical school and what type of residency a doctor has done. Both require a high level of training, a written examination, and an oral examination.
