ABMS Plans to Launch Hospital Medicine Board Certification

Modern Healthcare reports that the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) plans to launch a five-year pilot program offering physicians board certification in hospital medicine.

After obtaining certification as internists, physicians would seek hospital medicine certification before their 10-year internal medicine certification expires.

The new certification would focus on knowledge and skills obtained through practice in the hospital setting.
