The Numerous Benefits to Becoming Board Certified in Urgent Care

Urgent Care Certification Benefits | BCUCMIf you are a physician who works in urgent care, or you are considering a future in this rapidly growing segment of healthcare, consider the many benefits to becoming board certified in Urgent Care Medicine through the Board of Certification in Urgent Care Medicine (BCUCM). At the American Board of Physician Specialties®, we developed the BCUCM to standardize the core concepts and competencies that define expertise in Urgent Care Medicine, ensuring that our Diplomates represent some of the most highly qualified and experienced professionals in the field.

In the increasingly competitive urgent care marketplace, providers are continually looking for opportunities to distinguish themselves from the competition. By pursuing Board Certification in Urgent Care, you can demonstrate to your patients that you have a mastery of knowledge in urgent care medicine and are well equipped to provide them with the high quality care that they require. For generations, Board Certification has been a trusted indicator of a physician’s qualifications, and the public knows that when researching providers they should prioritize Board Certified physicians above less-qualified options. This is particularly important in urgent care where many communities have several different walk-in clinics, so the potential marketing benefits associated with having a physician on staff who is Board Certified in Urgent Care Medicine are significant.

Whether you are starting an urgent care center as your own business or you are interested in pursuing career opportunities in this extremely popular specialty, being Board Certified in Urgent Care Medicine is highly advantageous.

To ensure that our Diplomates in Urgent Care Medicine are highly qualified, they must first meet stringent standards that will give their patients confidence that they’re in good hands. Full eligibility requirements can be found here. To learn more about the BCUCM and the many benefits to becoming Board Certified in Urgent Care Medicine through our Member Board, contact us today.

Patient Care Is Our Priority

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.
