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.

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.
