Brian Chaney MD, CPE, FAAFP of Baptist Health Medical Group Powderly receives Certified Physician Executive credentialing through American Association for Physician Leadership®
Madisonville, KY. (December 28, 2017): The American Association for Physician Leadership® announced Dr. Brian Chaney of Baptist Health Medical Group Powderly has earned the prestigious Certified Physician Executive (CPE) certification. CPE designation indicates a physician has achieved superior levels of professional excellence and management education while also demonstrating effective health care industry knowledge and leadership skills.
“Physicians are becoming increasingly involved in healthcare management roles,” said Chaney. “Leadership skills such as collaboration, communication, change management and conflict management are essential. Medical school and residency training does not prepare physicians for these areas. In becoming a certified physician executive, I have taken courses to learn these skills which will make me a more effective member of the healthcare management team. It also puts me in a position to help problem solve and improve the overall quality of care that is delivered to patients,” Chaney added.
Dr. Chaney currently practices Family Medicine at Baptist Health in Powderly. He also serves as Medical Director of Primary Care, Madisonville Market, Baptist Health Medical Group and Medical Director of Hospice for Baptist Health Madisonville.
The certification is the industry benchmark for CEOs and executive recruiters seeking the most accomplished and influential physician leaders. It speaks to the physician’s commitment to improving patient care.
“The contemporary challenges facing health care today require physician leaders who can interlace clinical knowledge, seasoned leadership skills and superior management acumen,” said Dr. Peter Angood, president and CEO of the American Association for Physician Leadership®.
The American Association for Physician Leadership® is the nation’s largest organization solely focused on leadership education and management training for physicians. Chartered by the American Association for Physician Leadership® to establish and maintain the high standards required for physician executive certification, the Certifying Commission in Medical Management has a 20-year history as a national, not-for-profit corporation certifying physicians specializing in medical management.
