ABIM Announces Members of its Subspecialty Board on Infectious Disease

Back

Philadelphia, PA, July 1, 2008 – The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) today announced the membership of its Subspecialty Board on Infectious Disease, one of 11 ABIM Subspecialty Boards that encompass the field of internal medicine. ABIM has issued more than 7,000 certificates in Infectious Disease.

ABIM's subspecialty boards are composed of experts in both academic medicine and practice, all of whom must be ABIM certified in the particular subspecialty. Members of these boards apply their individual and collective knowledge toward the development of the policies, standards and requirements for Certification and Maintenance of Certification in their subspecialty, with special focus on developing the cognitive exam that physicians must take to certify or maintain their certification. Diagnostic reasoning and judgment are the hallmarks of the internal medicine physician and these exams present clinical scenarios like those encountered in the practice of infectious disease.

"The experience and skills this group of infectious disease professionals brings to ABIM are impressive, and their expertise will be extremely valuable as it works to determine the requirements and qualifications of candidates applying for certification in this important subspecialty," said Dr. George Karam, Chair of the Subspecialty Board on Infectious Disease.

Members of the Subspecialty Board on Infectious Disease include:

  • Frank J. Bia, MD – Yale University School of Medicine
  • J. Stephen Dummer, MD – Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
  • Joel E. Gallant, MD – Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
  • George H. Karam, MD (Chair) – Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans
  • Jeanne M. Marrazzo, MD – University of Washington
  • Thomas Frost Patterson, MD – University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
  • Mindy Schuster, MD – University of Pennsylvania
