The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) recently announced new appointments to its governance structure, including several new Specialty Board members and Exam Committee members. Regional Gi’s Christopher E. Shih, MD, was named as member of ABIM’s Gastroenterology Board Exam Committee.
“Specialty Boards have helped ABIM engage physicians across several disciplines to rate MOC exam content to ensure it reflects what physicians in practice need to know,” said Richard J. Baron, MD, President and CEO of ABIM. “Our new members will make important contributions to the process, which will remain essential as ABIM plans to begin offering physicians MOC assessment options that better meet their needs. ABIM governance will also lead ongoing conversations with the community to help refine these options.”
Christopher E. Shih, MD, graduated cum laude from Harvard University and earned his medical degree at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Shih completed his internal medicine residency training at the University of Pennsylvania and his gastroenterology fellowship at Johns Hopkins.
“It’s a great honor for me to be one of only a handful of physicians chosen nationwide to be on this committee,” said Shih. “I look forward to working with some of the brightest minds in the country in the field of gastroenterology. I will strive to represent Regional Gi well in helping to develop an exam that fairly and accurately assesses a physician’s abilities and competency.”
