Dr. Bosner named to ABIM Cardiology Board
Matthew S. Bosner, MD, FACC, Director of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Imaging at Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital (SGCMH), Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, was recently named to the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) new Cardiology Board.
“The broad depth of knowledge and skills represented on the new Cardiology Board will help as we work to evolve our Certification and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) programs – to increase their relevancy for all of the specialties in cardiology,” said Richard J. Baron, MD, President and CEO of ABIM. “I am confident that the board will effectively drive innovation in the options we offer cardiologists to meet MOC requirements.”
“I feel quite honored to be on this board,” said Dr. Bosner. “A major aspect of the work is related to how we will work with physicians nationwide to determine the most effective ways for them to keep up with a rapidly changing world of medical knowledge.”
During the initial ABIM interview, Dr. Bosner had the opportunity to discuss specifics of how cardiology is practiced in rural communities.
“They were quite pleased with the results and the close relationships that the hospital has developed with nearby medical centers,” said Dr. Bosner. “We’ll be discussing some of the success we’ve had with other members of the board to see if the type of programs we’ve instituted at SGCMH can be can be implemented at small communities throughout the country.
“I believe ABIM’s new governance model is an opportunity to build new partnerships within the broad cardiology community while working to improve the Certification and MOC program across the spectrum of cardiology,” said Dr. Jessup, Chair of the Cardiology Board. “The recent changes to the MOC program have created a lot of discussion, and the board members will bring the perspective of their peers as we work to improve the MOC experience for all cardiologists.”
