Xiulu Ruan, MD, a fellowship trained, multi-boarded pain management specialist, has achieved 8 medical board/subspecialty board certifications in the United States - setting the world record for the Most medical board certifications, according to the World Records Academy.
Dr. Xiulu Ruan attended the Shandong Medical University (formerly Medical School of QiLu University), from 1982 to 1988. He came to US in 1989, attended graduate school at LSU, Baton Rouge and received his Master of Natural Sciences in 1993.

"To me, the practice of medicine is not just a profession, but a life-long commitment that calls for dedication to excellence. This dedication has led me to pursue an added measure of expertise via board certifications," Dr. Xiulu said.

His formal medical training in the US includes an internship in the Department of Medicine, Worcester Medical Center, Worcester, MA; Residency training in the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation in Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals, Milwaukee, WI; Clinical Interventional Pain Management Fellowship training in the Department of Anesthesiology, University of Michigan Medical Center, Ann Arbor, MI.

Ruan was fortunate to be the 1st non-anesthesiology physician recruited as a Clinical Interventional Pain Fellow by the Department of Anesthesiology of University of Michigan Medical Center.

Dr. Xiulu Ruan has achieved 8 medical board/subspecialty board certifications in the United States:

Diplomate, American Board of Pain Medicine;
Diplomate, American Board of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation; Diplomate, American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians;
Diplomate, American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine;
Diplomate, American Board of Addiction Medicine;
Diplomate, American Board of Independent Medical Examiners;
Diplomate, Subspecialty of Pain Medicine by American Board of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation;
Diplomate, Subspecialty of Neuromuscular Medicine by American Board of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation; Fellow, Interventional Pain Practice, World Institute of Pain.

Board certification is the process by which a physician (M.D. or D.O.), dentist (DDS or DMD), pharmacist (Pharm.D.), or podiatrist (DPM) in the United States demonstrates through either written, practical, and/or simulator based testing, a mastery of the basic knowledge and skills that define an area of medical specialization.

Physicians seeking board certification in a given area of specialty must successfully complete and pass an examination process designed to test their mastery of the minimum knowledge and skills contained in the core competency document. Prior to taking the examination, a physician must graduate with a degree, either MD or DO, and meet all other prerequisites to certification as set out by the certifying agency or "board."
"My career goal is to become that physician, in the history of United States, who has achieved the most medical board/sub-specialty board certifications of all time; and be able to translate what I have learned into best patient care," Dr. Xiulu Ruan said.

"In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family and work with my three German Shephards. I also like to watch track & field events, soccer, football, and poker games. I am also a exotic car fan who like to ride sports cars."
