SSM Depaul Medical Group family medicine physician receives board certification 

ST. LOUIS, MO - Dr. David A. Dorsey, family medicine physician with DePaul Medical Group Primary Care has been certified with the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM).

The American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) is the second largest medical specialty board in the United States. Founded in 1969, it is a voluntary, not-for-profit, private organization whose purposes include:  improving the quality of medical care available to the public; establishing and maintaining standards of excellence in the specialty of Family Medicine; improving the standards of medical education for training in Family Medicine; and determining by evaluation the fitness of specialists in Family Medicine who apply for and hold certificates. 

The American Board of Family Medicine’s objective is to encourage excellence in medical care. ABFM believes certified family physicians have successfully demonstrated their ability and have proven their commitment to the public, the specialty of Family Medicine and the profession. Through its certification and re-certification processes, ABFM seeks to provide patients the assurance that its certified family physicians have completed the necessary training/experience to provide quality care to the individual and the family and that this commitment to excellence is maintained throughout the physician’s years of practice.
