Administrative Medicine Certification: The Next Step for Healthcare Administrators

Administrative Medicine Board Certification ABPSBecoming board certified through the American Board of Administrative Medicine℠, a member board of the American Board of Physician Specialties®, is an excellent opportunity for physician leaders with advanced business degrees to demonstrate their expertise in this rapidly growing field. Our member board is administered by and dedicated to physician leaders in healthcare administration, providing opportunities for our Diplomates to be recognized for their business acumen as well as their medical expertise.

Now more than ever, there is a need for healthcare professionals who are experts in managing increasingly complex healthcare organizations. As modern medicine has become more specialized across countless disciplines, and as emerging healthcare technologies have revolutionized medical management, healthcare organizations are looking to hire leaders who have extensive experience in both medicine and business. This is why the ABAM was developed. We want to offer highly competitive candidates the opportunity to highlight their mastery of administrative medicine, effectively showcasing their knowledge of the business-side of medicine to colleagues, physician recruiters, and members of their respective hospital boards. Our Diplomates understand how to navigate the complex waters of managing healthcare facilities and staff of all sizes and are truly the best in their field.

To be eligible for board certification through ABAM, healthcare administrators must hold an unrestricted license to practice medicine in the United States, its territories, or Canada and have evidence of medical administrative experience as defined by one of the following:

  • A master’s degree in business administration, medical management, or health administration
  • At least five years of cumulative experience in an administrative position, including additional training in management-related functions outlined here

Their ongoing, steadfast commitment to physician board(s) enhancement, forward focused vision, and tenacity is second to none. ABPS has become a recognized choice in Physician Board Certification.

To be the best, you must measure yourself against the best. Achieving Board Certification in Emergency Medicine by the ABPS gave me the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of the art of EM in an objective way. The high bar that ABPS sets for candidates to be allowed to take both the written and oral exam is a testament to ABPS's rigorous vetting of one's ability to practice Emergency Medicine at a high level. By maintaining these credentials, I've been able to instill confidence in my abilities at the department/employer level and ultimately with the patients that choose to seek emergency care at the facilities at which I practice.

The American Board of Physician Specialties has supported the entire field of Integrative Medicine in sponsoring our board. It has been so validating of the importance of prevention-oriented and holistic approaches to care while emphasizing the scientific basis of this specialty to have it recognized by ABPS. I am proud to have been one of the first groups to be board certified by ABPS in Integrative Medicine, leading the way for others committed to training in this specialty.
