Edward O. Senu-Oke MD, ABOIM, ABIM

Dr. Senu-Oke is board certified in Integrative Holistic Medicine as well as Internal Medicine and has been in independent practice since 2006.  He began his medical career as a traditional private practice physician seeing patients inside and out of the hospital.  He converted his practice to almost exclusively inpatient work in the fall of 2007.  At that time, he began calling for hospitalist practice reform developing nonconventional and innovative operational models.  He became a founding member of the Bon Secour Hospitalist Group at Maryview Medical Center in Hampton Roads, Virginia and is their former Chief of Internal Hospitalist Affairs.  As the founder of his company, Fusion Health, Dr. Senu-Oke continues his independent practice as a holistic hospitalist throughout the states of Virginia, Delaware, and Florida.  He also performs consulting work in the area of medical service administration to small and medium sized medical facilities.

On his journey to becoming a holistic practitioner, Dr. Senu-Oke has travelled across the country and even intercontinentally to Canada, China, and Africa becoming proficient in a number of medical modalities such as functional medicine, low velocity manual medicine, occupational medicine, nutritional medicine, pain and palliative care medicine, and sports medicine.  Dr. Senu-Oke of course continues his own medical education via conferences, seminars, and even one-on-one sessions with medical professional of various holistic backgrounds. With a goal of providing committed and competent service to his patients, physician colleagues, and students; Dr. Senu-Oke believes open evidence-based holistic practice is important and necessary.  Dr. Senu-Oke is honored to be an active member of the American Board of Integrative Medicine.

Dr. Senu-Oke has a lifelong interest in health and fitness.  His goal as a physician educator has been to facilitate healing and wellness and to get patients on to the path of optimal health.  Understanding that optimal health is part of a spectrum of shifting expectations that spans a lifetime, Dr. Senu-Oke also wanted to understand end of life issues.  This lead to an interest in dementia that began out of an effort to explain nutritional deficiencies and chronic encephalopathy in the elderly.  As research in the area of chronic inflammation grew, greater links could be made between the common pathways of cardiovascular disease and ischemic brain disease.  There also seemed to be a nebulous link with dementia.  Dr. Senu-Oke set out to reconcile these issues.  His studies of greater than a decade are now culminating in a more robust understanding of the disease.

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.

On October 18, 2007, President George W. Bush released Homeland Security Presidential Directive 21 (HSPD-21), calling on our nation, among other initiatives, to “collectively support and facilitate the establishment of a discipline of disaster health”. It is a great testament to the wisdom and foresight of the American Board of Physician Specialties that it immediately set to work and created, within the short span of only one year, an educational blueprint and set of certification examinations, both written and oral, for a new subspecialty of disaster medicine—and it is why I chose to be part this vital initiative and this wonderful organization. This is but one of the many innovative programs initiated by the American Board of Physician Specialties over the years, and why I am proud to support its work on behalf of our nation’s public health.

When the American Board of Physician Specialties offered to host the American Board of Integrative Medicine, ABPS became a landmark organization working to move medicine into the twenty first century. Certifying physicians who have completed rigorous academic training in Integrative Medicine ensures that the field of Integrative Medicine will continue to develop academically, clinically, and professionally. The leadership of ABPS continues to impress me - they are diligent in constantly innovating to provide certifications for physicians who want to advance their careers and their areas of expertise. I am honored to be a part of this organization.

There are many ways board certification advances a physician career. ABPS Board examination verifies your accuracy, precision, and reflects your mastery of your residency training verifying your expertise. ABPS Board certification demonstrates your level of expertise beyond your practice experience, primary education degrees, and training which are necessary for insurance reimbursement and practice privilege requirements. Attaining your ABPS Board Certification will clarify your purpose, secure your practice growth, and expand into leadership positions. Board certification can serve as an indication of a physician’s commitment to medicine, beyond the minimal standards and competency of training, their measurement to quality of care, and attaining an award for excellence.

When I think historically, advancement in medicine and patient safety and care has been driven by the diversity of people and scientific thought. That’s what I found at the ABPS and more. For over 60 years that is just who we are. I found a physician certifying body that provides a choice and voice to all physicians ensuring that patients are always placed first.

When I decided to pursue a full time role as a physician executive it was important to me to obtain additional professional training, education and work experience. Board certification through the ABPS in Administrative Medicine is validation of my efforts and a demonstration of dedication to professional development. We need more physicians to become full time health care executives, knowing there is a board certification option in Administrative Medicine encourages physicians to take the leap from full time clinical practice to healthcare organizational leadership.

Richard Paula, MD
Administrative Medicine
The American Board of Physician Specialties has provided me with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of internal medicine through board certification. As a hospitalist, board certification is an expected credential, and hospitals recognize the American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS) as one of the three standard credentialling bodies for Internal Medicine. Additionally, the ABPS has helped me develop leadership skills as a Board member and Committee Chairperson. ABPS has also helped me sharpen critical thinking skills as a test question developer and reviewer. The Allopathic (MD) and Osteopathic (DO) physicians in the ABPS are lifelong learners and frequently pursue multiple board certifications. I enjoy the camaraderie of my peers in ABPS.
