Recognition for Physician Leaders
Becoming board certified in Administrative Medicine through the American Board of Administrative Medicine® (ABAM®) is an excellent way for physicians with extensive business experience to distinguish themselves. As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, there are more leadership opportunities available to motivated physicians than ever before. To help identify the physician candidates with unique expertise in both the medical and business sides of healthcare, the ABAM was developed by the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS). Board certification is a trusted indicator of a physician’s expertise, and our Diplomates represent some of the most qualified and experienced physicians in healthcare management, governance, and administration.
To be eligible to pursue board certification in Administrative Medicine through the ABAM, interested physician candidates must have either:
- A master’s degree in business administration, health administration, or medical management
- At least five years of cumulative experience in an administrative position, as well as further training in management-related functions and additional qualifications outlined by the ABAM
Candidates must also successfully pass a standardized examination that tests core knowledge in a variety of domains relevant to Administrative Medicine, including finance, health policy, and quality and safety, among others.
While the process to becoming board certified is rigorous, successful Diplomates become part of an esteemed community of physician leaders who are positioned to shape the future of the healthcare sector. Whether you run your own private practice, have a leadership position within a hospital organization, or you’re seeking to make yourself more employable as your career advances, we strongly encourage you to consider becoming board certified through ABAM.
