Internal Medicine Residency Director named to American Board of Internal Medicine Board of Directors
Billings, MT – Billings Clinic is pleased to announce that Roger W. Bush, MD, Billings Clinic Internal Medicine Residency director, has been appointed to the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Board of Directors, effective July 1, 2015.
“Election to the ABIM Board of Directors is a significant honor – one we are proud to bestow on a physician of Dr. Bush’s caliber,” said Richard J. Baron, MD, president and CEO of ABIM. “The work Dr. Bush is doing to establish models of high-quality, patient-centered care, and where he’s doing it – not in the well-establish institutions of the East and West coasts – distinguishes him as a leader with perspective important to the board’s mission.”
Based in Philadelphia and incorporated in 1936, ABIM certifies a quarter of all U.S. physician specialists. The Board of Directors advances the strategic direction for the organization, formally establishes all policies, approves initiatives and sets mission, direction and strategy for ABIM. The Board is composed of 12 to 15 Directors, the majority of who must have current clinical practice experience.
“This honor recognizes Billings Clinic’s transformative Internal Medicine Residency, as well as the need for end-to-end redesign of health care delivery,” said Dr. Bush, “Our project pairs patient-centered, team-based, value-driven health care with primary care physician workforce development. I deeply appreciate the privilege of bringing these perspectives into a national conversation.”
Dr. Bush also serves on the Internal Medicine Specialty Board for General Internal Medicine and the Hospital Medicine test-writing committee. For more information about ABIM, please visit www.abim.org.
