The HMDCB Certification Program is Growing
The Hospice Medical Director Certification Board (HMDCB) has wrapped up the second application cycle for physicians seeking to earn the Hospice Medical Director Certified® (HMDC®) credential. A steady stream of applicants completed the online application process this year in hopes of joining the more than 300 physicians who certified in 2014.
Applications for the 2016 examination will open in November 2015 for eligible physicians. Physicians can apply through one of three pathways to be eligible, including an experiential pathway. HMDCB certification is voluntary, which is why having the credential shows patients, families, colleagues, and employers your commitment to professional development.
