Emergency Medicine Practice Management Groups Can Ensure Competency of Emergency Department Doctors

Emergency Medicine Practice Management GroupsTo 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.

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.

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.

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.
