GILLETTE, WY –
Dr. Francesca McCaffrey and
Dr. Hollie Stewart, Campbell County Medical Group
Pediatrics, have received Board Certification in Pediatrics from the
American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). Drs. McCaffrey and Stewart practice at the CCMG Pediatrics clinic,
located in the
Main Clinic on the south side of the
Campbell County Memorial Hospital. Both physicians are accepting new patients.
Board certification is a voluntary process that goes above and beyond state
licensing requirements for practicing medicine. It is an ongoing commitment
by a physician to continually expand their knowledge in a medical specialty,
like pediatrics, or in a subspecialty, such as pediatric hematology/oncology.
Eligible candidates sit for the initial certifying examination of the ABP,
the first part of a rigorous
on-going process of assessing the knowledge and skills of a pediatrician
to determine if he or she meets the ABP’s standards of excellence.
Upon passing this exam, the candidate is awarded the title “Diplomate
of the American Board of Pediatrics” and is designated as “board-certified”.
Once pediatricians are certified, they must continue to demonstrate learning
through a formal Maintenance of Certification program if they want to
Pediatricians know about the diseases, symptoms and developmental standards
that are specific to children from birth, through adolescence and into
adulthood. Maintaining good health and addressing the illnesses and conditions
that threaten health often is not the same in children as in adults. There
is value, not only in seeing a physician who understands the medical needs
of infants, children and adolescents, but who also becomes familiar with
children’s growth, development and health patterns. The long-lasting
relationship that develops between a child and her or his pediatrician
is an important component of their care and wellness.
Founded in 1933, the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) is one of the 24
certifying boards of the
American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). The ABP is an independent, nonprofit organization whose certificate
is recognized throughout the world as a credential signifying a high level
of physician competence. Learn more at
