Emergency Medicine Practice Management Groups Can Ensure Competency of Emergency Department Doctors
To help ensure the competency of emergency department doctors in area hospitals, Emergency Medicine practice management groups are strongly encouraged to hire physicians with impeccable credentials, including those who possess board certification in Emergency Medicine. At the Board of Certification in Emergency Medicine® (BCEM), we have developed rigorous standards that help us to identify and recognize physician leaders who have the documented experience and extensive training necessary to excel in the high-pace, stressful environment of the emergency room.
The BCEM is also unique in that we offer an opportunity for board certification to highly qualified physicians who have spent their careers in the emergency department but may have completed residency training in Primary Care or a similar, relevant field. As a result, our community of Diplomates provides practice management groups with a robust pool of physician candidates to consider for Emergency Medicine opportunities throughout the community. This helps address the troubling shortage of EM-certified physicians in hospitals throughout North America and provides peace of mind to employers that the physicians on staff are equipped to meet the needs of the ER.
In today’s competitive healthcare environment, it is critical for hospitals to ensure that their physicians are competent in the specialty that they practice, which is why the board certification process is more important than ever. If your practice management group must ensure the competency of your ED doctors, consider the many benefits of working with the BCEM. At the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we developed the BCEM to bring together a large community of Emergency Medicine leaders to share best practices, offer career opportunities, and help the specialty continue to grow.
