All openings that are posted in the online Career Center are also distributed to members via e-mail through the ABPS Career Bulletin.

If you are seeking to recruit a highly qualified emergency medicine practitioner, then you will be pleased to know that adverting the position through our online Career Center and the ABPS Career Bulletin is an effective way of bringing the vacancy to the attention of some of the most talented EM doctors in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The Board of Certification in Emergency Medicine (BCEM) provides a meaningful way for qualified physicians to demonstrate their proficiency at providing emergency care. Since 1989, the BCEM has fulfilled the certification and recertification needs of emergency department physicians who wish to formally demonstrate their mastery of the specialty. To be eligible, a candidate must have completed an accredited residency in emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, pediatric medicine, or general surgery. Alternatively, a primary care-trained physician who wishes to become a BCEM Diplomate must have either practiced emergency medicine on a full-time basis for at least five years (7,000 hours) or have completed a BCEM-approved emergency medicine graduate training program. All candidates, regardless of training, must submit documentation detailing their case experience. Complete eligibility requirements can be found here.

The ABPS, which is the official certifying body for the American Association of Physician Specialists (AAPS), is proud to partner with medical recruiters who recognize the prestige that is associated with being board certified through one of our Member Boards. All ABPS Diplomates are required to uphold that most rigorous of standards, and to take a pledge to adhere to the ABPS Code of Ethics. Oversight of our organization is governed by the AAPS board of directors, which helps ensure that testing standards and eligibility requirements are as rigorous as any physician board certifying body in the world.

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.

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.
