Dr. Rafael Schmulevich practices cardiology at Heart Care Cardiology in Steubenville, Ohio.  He has successfully completed the requirements to maintain board certification in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).

ABIM works to enhance the quality of health care by certifying internists and subspecialists who demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes essential for excellent patient care.  Physicians must periodically complete requirements to maintain their certification, including passing an examination and completing a self-assessment of knowledge and practice. 

Board certification is the industry benchmark by which physician quality is measured and recognized.  Physicians who successfully complete their recertification requirements demonstrate the currency of their knowledge and their ability to use it, by passing a rigorous examination and by assessing their knowledge and performance in practice on an ongoing basis.
