Physician Board Certification in Administrative Medicine Offered by the American Board of Administrative Medicine®

Administrative Medicine Board CertificationThe American Board of Administrative Medicine (ABAM) is now accepting applications for its inaugural administrative medicine board certification examination to be held in October 2016. This board was developed by the American Board of Physician Specialties® to give physicians with unique experience in the business side of the healthcare industry the opportunity to demonstrate their expertise through board certification. While the testing process is rigorous, successful candidates will be part of a Diplomate community that includes some of the best and brightest physician leaders in North America.

To be eligible to pursue board certification, candidates must:

  • Have a master of science in business administration, medical management, or healthcare administration, or have at least five years of cumulative experience in an administrative position with management training
  • Currently hold or have previously held board certification through the ABPS, AMS, AOA, or a RCPSC board
  • Have a valid and unrestricted license to practice medicine

There are several advantages to becoming board certified through the ABAM. For starters, Diplomates are able to clearly show prospective employers that they have extensive business acumen and can be relied upon to help run a practice, hospital, or other healthcare organization. Board certification in administrative medicine also represents another opportunity for highly qualified physicians to distinguish themselves in order to be more appealing for career advancement and new opportunities.

Furthermore, ABAM Diplomates are part of an extensive network of physician leaders who have the opportunity to share best practices, success stories, and lessons to help advance the field of administrative medicine across North America. For physicians who are interested in becoming more involved in administrative medicine, or who already run their own practice and want their expertise in business formally recognized, board certification through ABAM is an excellent option. Eligibility requirements and the application for examination can be found here. Contact the ABPS today to learn more. The ABPS is the official board certifying body of the American Association of Physician Specialists, Inc.®

Patient Care Is Our Priority

Medical organizations throughout North America understand that our rigorous certification standards prove that ABPS Diplomates are capable of delivering the best patient care possible.

I feel truly blessed and grateful to be an internal medicine board-certified diplomate with the American Board of Physician Specialties. 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.
