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.

I feel truly blessed and grateful to be an internal medicine board-certified diplomate with the American Board of Physician Specialties. Their ongoing, steadfast commitment to physician board(s) enhancement, forward focused vision, and tenacity is second to none. ABPS has become a recognized choice in Physician Board Certification.

To be the best, you must measure yourself against the best. Achieving Board Certification in Emergency Medicine by the ABPS gave me the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of the art of EM in an objective way. The high bar that ABPS sets for candidates to be allowed to take both the written and oral exam is a testament to ABPS's rigorous vetting of one's ability to practice Emergency Medicine at a high level. By maintaining these credentials, I've been able to instill confidence in my abilities at the department/employer level and ultimately with the patients that choose to seek emergency care at the facilities at which I practice.

The American Board of Physician Specialties has supported the entire field of Integrative Medicine in sponsoring our board. It has been so validating of the importance of prevention-oriented and holistic approaches to care while emphasizing the scientific basis of this specialty to have it recognized by ABPS. I am proud to have been one of the first groups to be board certified by ABPS in Integrative Medicine, leading the way for others committed to training in this specialty.
