Being ABCC certified allows me to be confident that I can compete for clinical chemistry/toxicology positions across the country. From a clinical licensing perspective, having ABCC certification was essential to obtaining a Clinical Chemist director license in the State of California. To me, someone with ABCC certification signifies that they are commitment to our profession and have achieved a high level of success.

My main area of practice is postmortem forensic toxicology. Being board certified in toxicological chemistry shows my colleagues, regulatory agencies, and the courts that I also have competence in the interpretation of test results pertaining to living individuals. Also, due to the continuing education requirements associated with this certification, I can better evaluate different case types with confidence that my skill set remains current with the latest clinical laboratory developments.

The ABCC credential speaks for itself—it indicates a level of knowledge, training, and expertise in our field.  People with a variety of educational backgrounds may serve as clinical consultants, and board certification provides a common baseline.  In my current position, I provide consultation to clients from across the United States, and board certification helps define my role.
