New HMDCB President Discusses His Role and the Organization Moving Forward
Following the Hospice Medical Director Certification Board’s (HMDCB) Fall 2018 Board of Directors meeting, Brian Murphy, MD MBA HMDC FAAHPM, a hospice physician at Orange Regional Medical Center in New York, took over as the organization’s president. Upon assuming the role, Murphy answered several questions about his excitement, the organization, and the new Continuing Certification Program.
As someone who has been involved in HMDCB since it launched, what motivated you to get involved, and how do you feel about taking over as president of the organization?
Simply put, [my motivation was] my love of hospice, of the work we do—and a need to give back to the field. I’m excited to work with the passionate and dedicated hospice physicians who make up our Board of Directors to continue to provide an opportunity for hospice physicians to have their competence recognized. This enables us to impact the work of more and more hospice physicians, ensuring quality care for patients and families across the country.
