Let the ABPS Help You Recruit a Highly Qualified Emergency Medicine Practitioner

Emergency MedicineThe American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) is committed to matching highly qualified ABPS Diplomates with career opportunities offered by physician recruiters from across North America. We give recruiters the ability to post job openings in our online Career Center free of charge in a concerted effort to bring these vacancies to the attention of the thousands of physicians affiliated with our organization – one of the most prominent nationally recognized multispecialty certifying bodies on the North American continent. 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.

I value my ABPS certification very highly because it is one-of-a-kind certification in Urgent Care Medicine under the auspices of a larger, reputable organization. I really enjoy the professional and personal relationships I have formed with other individuals in the development of this new board and appreciate the great lengths that ABPS goes to ensure and enhance the recognition of it's component boards.
