Furthermore, certification marks individuals as reliable physicians for case managers, employers, insurance claims adjusters, and other health professionals.
Physician candidates for CIME status must possess an unrestricted medical license and remain in good standing with their state medical board in order to qualify for certification. In addition to meeting continuing medical education requirements, they must pass a rigorous written examination and have at least 10 years of experience in medical practice or a recognized medical concentration.
