Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell Associate Dean of Diversity and Inclusion, Robert Roswell, MD, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
ABIM Board members set the future direction, strategy, and goals for the organization and develop and maintain important partnerships in the healthcare community.
"It is a true honor to serve on the Board of Directors of the ABIM to further its mission to enhance the quality of care for all patients," said Dr. Roswell, who also serves associate professor of science education and cardiology at the Zucker School of Medicine. "To that end, I will strive to advance the principles of health equity and the delivery of health care with cultural humility on a national level. I also hope to improve cardiac ICU outcomes by standardizing clinical care and educational requirements for cardiac intensivists through novel ABIM certification pathways."
In addition to his role at the medical school, Dr. Roswell is co-director of the cardiac ICU and the associate cardiology fellowship director at Northwell Health's Lenox Hill Hospital. He is board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular diseases.
ABIM's Board is comprised of physicians with a variety of practice experience as well as members of the interprofessional healthcare team and public who provide important insights into patient care. All ABIM Board member physicians participate in Maintenance of Certification (MOC) assessments, and all members collaborate across the medical community to set strategy, lead innovation in assessment methods and explore opportunities to enhance continuous professional learning.
"I am pleased to welcome Dr. Roswell to the ABIM Board of Directors," said Richard J. Baron, MD, president and CEO, ABIM. We look forward to the expertise and experience he brings as we continue to build lasting partnerships with physicians and provide a pathway to assure they are staying current with advances in medicine so they can deliver outstanding patient care."
