Recognition for Urgent Care Physicians

Urgent Care RecognitionAt the Board of Certification in Urgent Care Medicine (BCUCM), a member board developed by the American Board of Physician Specialties®, we offer board certification to highly qualified primary care physicians who have extensive experience in Urgent Care medicine. This rapidly growing specialty has become increasingly popular with patients throughout North America. By becoming board certified in this area of expertise, you have the opportunity to distinguish yourself and your office from the competition.

Board certification is a trusted indicator that many patients rely on when researching physicians in their community. This is why becoming board certified in Urgent Care is so valuable. If a patient is trying to decide which Urgent Care center to visit in their community, the availability of an Urgent Care board certified physician in a walk-in center can be a strong incentive for the patient to visit your clinic.

The board certification process is available to all allopathic and osteopathic physicians who practice Urgent Care medicine in North America. To be eligible, the physician candidate must:

  • Have completed residency training in an ACGME/AOA-approved program
  • Practice Urgent Care medicine for a minimum of 1400 clinical hours per year
  • Adhere to additional board certification eligibility requirements found here

If you are a physician who has opened an urgent care facility or specializes in urgent care medicine, you deserve the opportunity to be recognized for your mastery of the core competencies of this burgeoning medical specialty. Through the BCUCM, you can present yourself to your peers, patients, and prospective patients as an expert in Urgent Care, and be part of a growing community of physician leaders who are sculpting the face of modern healthcare.

To learn more about the many benefits to obtaining board certification through the BCUCM, contact the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS) today. The ABPS is the official certifying body of the American Association of Physician Specialists, Inc.®.

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.
