It is Important for Urgent Care Physicians to be Board Certified in Their Specialty

Urgent Care Board Certification BCUCMIn recent years, Urgent Care medicine has grown increasingly popular among patients. People respond to the convenient access to high quality healthcare offered by these ubiquitous walk-in clinics, and it’s not surprising that this industry has expanded significantly across North America. However, as the demand for Urgent Care has increased, so too has competition among practices. Today, it is more important than ever for Urgent Care clinics to effectively market themselves and be able to demonstrate to the public that they are the best choice for treatment. For this reason, it is incumbent on Urgent Care physicians to become board certified in their specialty.

Board certification has long been the most trusted indicator of a physician’s abilities among the general public. While not everyone knows what it takes to become board certified, patients understand that board-certified physicians are the experts in their specialty area. As a result, having a board-certified physician working in an Urgent Care clinic is a key indicator to prospective patients that they will receive exemplary care when they visit. The Board of Certification in Urgent Care Medicine® (BCUCM), we are the nation’s first multi-specialty member board dedicated entirely to providing board certification to highly qualified physicians who specialize in Urgent Care medicine.

The benefit to pursuing board certification through the BCUCM is that our Diplomates can present themselves as masters of the core concepts and competencies unique to the Urgent Care model of medicine. Additionally, our Diplomates are part of an exclusive community of like-minded physicians who have the opportunity to share best practices and move the specialty forward.

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.
