In brief: Completed all reqs.
Board certified means that a physician has successfully completed several rigorous training requirements.
Firstly, a training regimen such as completing a residency or fellowship after medical school must be documented. Then an examination testing basic knowledge and problem solving must be passed. This is examination is given by a governing body such as the american board of internal medicine.
