American Board Of Internal Medicine and Abim Foundation Announces Executive Changes

American Board Of Internal Medicine's Board of Directors unanimously approved Dr. Richard J. Baron as its new President and Chief Executive Officer, effective June 2013. Dr. Baron will serve as President and CEO of both American Board Of Internal Medicine and the Abim Foundation, succeeding Christine K. Cassel, MD, who will be stepping down in June. For almost 30 years, Dr. Baron practiced general internal medicine and geriatrics, first in rural Tennessee with the National Health Service Corps from 1981 - 1984, then in the general internal medicine division of the Medical College of Pennsylvania, establishing a community-based satellite practice for the College. From 1988-1996, Dr. Baron served as Chief Medical Officer of Health Partners. He was the architect of the Best Clinical and Administrative Practices program, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Center for Health Care Strategies.

The U.S. District Court Dismisses Discrimination Claims Against American Board Of Internal Medicine and Certain State Agencies

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania dismissed claims brought by Dr. Anand Munsif against American Board Of Internal Medicine and certain state agencies including the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners and other parties alleging Racketeer influenced and Corrupt Practices Act (RICO) violations and employment discrimination arising from an alleged scheme to impede the plaintiff's medical career in New Jersey. The district court noted that Munsif's allegations regarding purported predicate acts of racketeering activity included the failure to list him in a computerized cardiovascular disease matching program in the 1980s, and in delaying transmission of a letter verifying his medical training in 2008. The court held that none of these or other similar alleged activities by the defendants constituted a crime under federal or state law and held that, as a result, the complaint failed to allege a pattern of racketeering activity by any of the defendants as required to support Munsif's civil RICO claims. The court concluded that a number of Munsif's remaining claims against ABIM were subject to dismissal based on res judicata because Munsif previously litigated the same claims against ABIM's officers in an earlier federal court action and lost. Munsif's fraud, gross negligence and discrimination claims were based on ABIM's mishandling of Munsif's registration for a June 2007 recertification exam, and these same events were the basis of his prior federal action. The court separately held that Munsif's whistleblower claims against ABIM were based on certain unspecified complaints he raised concerning ABIM's patient care activities and alleged race-influenced policies. The court held that the complaint failed to adequately describe Munsif's alleged complaints or how ABIM violated the statutes. Accordingly, and after finding no merit to Munsif's remaining claims, the district court granted the defendants' motion to dismiss.
