Hospital Staff Recruiters Are Welcome to Utilize the ABPS Career CenterThe American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) is committed to helping its Diplomates find career opportunities throughout North America. To this end, we have developed the ABPS Career Center, a free service that hospital staff recruiters can utilize to identify the most highly qualified candidates for job openings.

Recruiters should know that any candidate they choose from the ABPS Career Center is a skilled and knowledgeable practitioner. That’s because physicians who have achieved ABPS board certification have met our strict eligibility requirements and have successfully completed exams developed under the most rigorous industry standards. Thus, only the most talented and dedicated physicians become ABPS-board certified. Not only that, but as physician leaders in a range of specialties, our Diplomates represent the entire scope of modern healthcare, from emergency medicine and orthopedic surgery to emerging specialties like integrative medicine and disaster medicine. Also, ABPS Diplomates practice in all 50 states, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and Canada.

Understandably, there has been a growing interest in the ABPS Career Center among hospital staff recruiters as the medical industry continues to emphasize hiring board certified physicians. It also helps that the Career Center is easy to use, with no complicated procedures or passwords. All job openings that are sent to the ABPS are posted in the Career Center, and to ensure that our Diplomates are aware of job prospects in their fields, openings are also distributed via email through a regular bulletin to our Diplomates.

The ABPS invites recruiters to use the Career Center to identify qualified job candidates and to submit job openings for posting in the Career Center and bulletin.

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.
