Highlands Oncology Group, with locations in Fayetteville and Rogers, Arkansas, is please to announce that one of their practicing physicians has, again, fulfilled the requirements for Board Certification in Medical Oncology and Hematology from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
Joseph Thaddeus Beck, MD, FACP, has been granted certification from the ABIM after successfully passing an examination and completing a self-assessment.
To be board certified is the highest, most coveted, mark of excellence in the medical field. The scope of physicians abilities are appraised and recognized by these certifications and to be board certified is regarded as the industry’s standard of excellence.
Physicians, periodically, must complete the ABIM’s designated requirement in order to maintain certification. The ABIM’s standard of certification requires that a physician has successfully portrayed through rigorous examination and through demonstration, to colleagues and patients alike, clear clinical judgement, skills and attitudes that are vital for the delivery of excellent patient care. Dr. Beck recently conquered the requirements for certification in medical oncology and hematology.
The board was founded by their respective specialties to protect the public by assessing and certifying doctors who meet specific educational, training and professional requirements, according to the ABIM.
The board certifies one out of every four practicing physicians in the United States, according to the ABIM, and research suggests board certification is associated with better care.
Dr. Beck co-founded the Highlands Oncology Group practice in 1996 and he continues practicing medical oncology and hematology at Highlands.
The partners and staff of Highlands Oncology Group wish to congratulate Dr. Beck on his continued outstanding performance and care for our patients.
