The Need for Strong Physician Leadership has never been Greater
To say that the American healthcare industry is rapidly changing would be an understatement. Increasingly, healthcare is becoming more and more collaborative, highly specialized and technologically advanced. While the top priority of every physician continues to be to deliver optimal patient care, the day-to-day responsibilities that come with practicing medicine have changed rapidly in a relatively short amount of time. Today’s healthcare landscape includes larger practices, healthcare organizations, and hospital groups that require strong leadership to manage.
To better manage patient demands, leverage new technology, and stay ahead of the curve, physicians are increasingly pursuing post-graduate degrees in Business Administration, Healthcare Management, and similar fields of training. In fact, many of America’s top medical schools have begun to offer dual track programs that prepare physicians to excel both in the examining room and the board room. For these highly motivated and exceedingly qualified individuals, the American Board of Administrative Medicine® (ABAM) offers a unique opportunity.
Our Member Board was developed to recognize those physicians who have the skills, training, and experience needed to lead. Where Board Certification has long been a trusted indicator of physician competence in patient care, ABAM Board Certification provides a similar assurance that the physician has mastered the core concepts and competencies required for a leadership role.
If you are a physician who has a strong background in both medicine and the business side of healthcare, become recognized by certify with ABAM. Our full eligibility requirements can be found here. Whether you run your own private practice or are interested in pursuing new career opportunities in a larger organization, Board Certification can provide a competitive advantage and demonstrate that you have the expertise needed to assume a leadership role to your peers and potential employers.
