Executive Director

American Board of Preventive Medicine Chicago, IL

The American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) invites applications and nominations for the position of Executive Director (ED). ABPM was established in 1948 to promote the health and safety of the American people through its high standards in the certification and maintenance of certification for physicians practicing within the field of preventive health. ABPM awards certificates of special knowledge in Preventive Medicine in the specialty areas of Aerospace Medicine, Occupational Medicine or Public Health, and General Preventive Medicine, as well as in the subspecialties of Medical Toxicology, Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine, Clinical Informatics, and Addiction Medicine.

The ED provides executive leadership for the ABPM. The ED reports to and works collaboratively with its Board of Directors to establish strategic priorities and to ensure the rigor and relevance of the ABPM certification and maintenance of certification to diplomates, the public, and a wide array of other healthcare entities.

The next ED will lead an organization that has recently gone through a period of rapid growth. The ED will build and organize the systems, infrastructure, and staffing needed to support ABPM and fully integrate its specialty and subspecialty areas. The ED will further position ABPM as a major contributor in preventive medicine and conversations in medical certification, maintenance of certification, healthcare quality, healthcare policy, and other areas.

The successful ED candidate will be knowledgeable about ABPM or a similar certifying board. Experienced in guiding complex organizations, the ED will excel in working collaboratively with a variety of stakeholders. The ED will bring the proven capacity for innovation, a deep commitment to delivering excellence in healthcare, and a clear understanding of certification, assessment, quality improvement, and continuous education in healthcare. The ED will have the knowledge, insight, and fortitude to make thoughtful but decisive judgments for both the present and the future. Physician and non-physician candidates will be considered.

All inquiries, nominations, referrals, and applications should be submitted via this webpage.
