Meadowview medical chief earns AMDA certification

SoVaNow.com / June 06, 2012
Dr. Jill Allen, medical director at MeadowView Terrace, has recently been awarded certification by AMDA, the professional association of medical directors, attending physicians and others practicing in the long term care continuum. AMDA is dedicated to excellence in patient care and provides education, advocacy, information and professional development to promote the delivery of quality long term care.

The Certified Medical Director (CMD) program recognizes the dual clinical and managerial roles of the medical director. Certification requires indicators of competence in clinical medicine and medical management in long term care. The certification process is based on a model incorporating fellowship programs, board certification, continuing medical education, CMD approved and AMDA-sponsored courses in medical direction and other continuing education programs to fulfill certification requirements.

The AMDA CMD program is administered by the American Medical Directors Certification Program and is open to medical directors serving in long term care. Certification is valid for six years.

Allen has also recently been notified that she has been named a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) recognizes members who have distinguished themselves among their colleagues, as well as their communities, by their service to Family Medicine, by their advancement of health care to the community and by their professional development through medical education and research. Fellows of the AAFP are considered champions of Family Medicine.

The AAFP is the national medical association representing family physicians, residents and medical students. Criteria for receiving the AAFP Degree of Fellow include a minimum of six years membership in the organization, extensive continuing medical education, participation in public service programs outside medical practice, conducting original research and serving as a teacher in family medicine.

To maintain membership in the American Academy of Family Physicians, Dr. Allen will be required to complete a minimum of 150 hours of accredited continuing medical education every three years.

Allen has been medical director of MeadowView Terrace since August 2005.
