Fellowship training in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine recognizes special commitment and expertise in Undersea and/or Hyperbaric Medicine. In the United States, those eligible for Fellowship training must be Board Certified in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine by a Board sanctioned by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and must be in active practice in undersea and/or hyperbaric medicine.

One of the requirements to achieve Board Certification in UHM, according to the American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) is to complete a full time ACGME accredited Fellowship in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine, during which approximately 25% of the Fellows time was spent in actual management of Undersea/Hyperbaric Medicine cases
